(Minneapolis, MN) — The Minnesota Lynx are switching up their roster and W-N-B-A Draft order a bit. The team acquired forward Sika Kone from the Chicago Sky in a trade that sent Nina Milic and the seventh overall pick in tonight’s W-N-B-A Draft back to Chicago. Minnesota also received the eighth pick in tonight’s draft, a 2025 second round selection, and a potential swap of first round picks in 2026. Kone averaged three-point-six points and three rebounds per game last season. Tonight’s draft starts at 6:30 P-M.
