The New York Liberty have traded center Kia Vaughn to the Washington Mystics in a deal for the seventh pick in this WNBA draft.
As expected, Detroit depended on Deanna Nolan and Katie Smith to clinch its third consecutive trip to the WNBA Finals. But Taj McWilliams-Franklin's post presence helped pave the way to the championship series, too.
Wednesday's trades were as big as the picks. And though there's a lot of unknowns, everyone came out optimistic -- just like most draft days.
The Phoenix Mercury traded their 2008 second-round draft pick to the New York Liberty for center Kelly Schumacher on Monday.
