Former Oregon guard Sabrina Ionescu is favored to be selected first overall in the upcoming 2020 WNBA Draft. Is this prop worth a bet?
Ionescu is destined to go No. 1 overall. The talented guard had one of the greatest careers in college basketball history, for a male or female player. She is the only man or woman with at least 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 1,000 assists in NCAA Basketball history. The 22-year-old’s 26 triple-doubles in her legendary career are the most in NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball history and was named unanimous AP Women’s Basketball Player of the Year.
Will Sabrina Ionescu Be Selected First in the 2020 WNBA Draft?
Ionescu is an incredible player who has it all: vision, handles, shooting, leadership. A three-time Pac-12 Player of the Year, she can be the face of the WNBA for years to come and she’s already recognized as a basketball icon worldwide. The late Kobe Bryant and many current NBA players, including Stephen Curry and LeBron James have shown their admiration for her and I can’t wait to see what the next step in her career will be.
The New York Liberty is the team the clock for the WNBA Draft and they should take Ionescu for all the reasons mentioned above. Also, the Liberty will play their home games at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn next season and Ionescu playing in a large market would be great marketing for them and for the entire league. Not to mention that the Liberty’s chances to win a WNBA Championship one day grow significantly if they can build their team around Ionescu.
As for the Sabrina Ionescu draft position prop mentioned above, at -2000 odds there’s little value but she is the best player available so it makes sense to make a small bet on this.
