Washington’s spot in the Lottery was the result of the Mystics having obtained the right to swap its own 2023 first-round pick with Atlanta for Los Angeles’ 2023 first-round pick.

The Mystics won the Lottery for the 2022 WNBA Draft and traded that No. 1 overall selection to the Atlanta Dream, which selected 2022 WNBA Rookie of the Year Rhyne Howard with the top pick.

Here is the order of the 2023 WNBA Draft:
