In addition, four players have rescinded their prior decisions to opt-in for the draft and have removed their names from consideration: Esmery Martinez (Arizona), Charisma Osborne (UCLA), Sedona Prince (Oregon), Endyia Rogers (Oregon).


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 2022-23 season. Accordingly, the WNBA and the WNBPA previously agreed on an opt-in process for NCAA players who are otherwise eligible for the 2023 WNBA Draft 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 2023 WNBA Draft 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 in to the 2023 WNBA Draft in order to be selected.


During the WNBA Draft 2023 presented by State Farm on April 10, WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert will announce the draft picks live on ESPN with exclusive coverage beginning at 7 p.m. ET. The draft 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 Spring Studios New York, located in the Tribeca section of Manhattan and the home to such iconic events as Fashion Week and The Tribeca Film Festival, serving as the venue for the evening’s events.


The Indiana Fever own the top pick in the WNBA Draft 2023 presented by State Farm.
