The Washington Mystics will have the first pick in the 2022 WNBA Draft after wining the draft lottery on Sunday.

The Indiana Fever, who entered the lottery with the highest chance of landing the first pick, will pick second. The Atlanta Dream will pick third, while the Dallas Wings will pick fourth.

The Mystics finished the 2021 season 12-20 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2016. Injuries to key players, including Elena Delle Donne and Alysha Clark, and several departures, including Aerial Powers and Emma Meesseman, proved to be too much for the 2019 champions to overcome.

The Mystics had the third best odds of getting the No. 1 pick at 17.8 percent. The Fever had the best odds at 44.2 percent, followed by the Dream at 27.6 percent and the Wings are at 10.4 percent.
