2005 WNBA Draft Live Chat:
Katie Smith and the Top Picks

Joining us live today to co-host our online coverage is Minnesota Lynx guard Katie Smith, one of the most prolific scorers in WNBA history as well as a two-time Olympic gold medalist. She was also a graduate assistant coach at Ohio State the past two seasons and knows the top prospects inside and out. She also knows a thing or two about the importance of the Draft. The Lynx were a playoff team last year thanks, in part, to their two Top Ten draft picks in 2004.

Smith will be answering your questions, making comments throughout the day and welcoming each of the top picks as they join us live to chat with you as well. So do not miss your chance to ask the newest members of the WNBA questions as they stop by and spend a few minutes with us immediately after they are selected . 10-12 players will be in attendance at the NBAE Studios in Secaucus, N.J. to hear their names called in person and shake WNBA President Donna Orender's hand.

Live coverage begins on ESPN2 at noon ET, but WNBA.com will be live at 11:30 a.m.! But don't wait 'til then. Send your questions to Katie and the first round draft picks who will be in attendance...
