Since the NCAA granted, in 2021, every winter sport student-athlete an additional year of NCAA eligibility as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, intercollegiate women’s basketball players – even those who are finishing their senior year or graduate studies – may have remaining NCAA eligibility after the 2023-24 season.  Accordingly, the WNBA and the WNBPA previously agreed on an opt-in process for NCAA players who are otherwise eligible for the WNBA Draft 2024 presented by State Farm.

 

Players who have exhausted all NCAA eligibility, including the additional year granted due to Covid-19, are not required to renounce in order to be available for selection in the WNBA Draft 2024 presented by State Farm but are nonetheless encouraged to notify the WNBA of their intent to be eligible for the Draft and may therefore be included in this list. Eligible international players (as that term is defined in the Collective Bargaining Agreement) also are not required to opt into the WNBA Draft 2024 presented by State Farm in order to be selected.

 

Players whose college teams are still active will have 48 hours following the conclusion of their final game to renounce their remaining NCAA eligibility and declare themselves available for the WNBA Draft 2024 presented by State Farm.

 

During the WNBA Draft 2024 presented by State Farm on April 15, WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert will announce the draft picks live on ESPN with exclusive coverage beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET.  The draft, along with the special, pre-draft edition of WNBA Countdown (ESPN, 7 p.m. ET) will also be available live on the ESPN App. Top prospects will take part live in-person when the WNBA Draft presented by State Farm tips off at the acclaimed Brooklyn Academy of Music, located in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

 

The Indiana Fever own the top pick in the WNBA Draft 2024 presented by State Farm.
