SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) — The Seattle Storm have won the No. 1 pick in the WNBA draft lottery.

The Tulsa Shock was awarded the second pick Thursday night, with Connecticut picking third and fourth. The Sun acquired the Liberty’s pick on draft night this past April in part of a package for Tina Charles.

The Storm finished tied with Tulsa for the league’s worst record at 12-22 and each had a 35.9 percent chance of landing the No. 1 pick. Connecticut, which finished a game better, had a 28.2 percent chance when combining its chances with those of the New York Liberty, who finished 15-19.

It’s Seattle’s first No. 1 pick since the 2002 season when the Storm selected Sue Bird. The team also had the first pick in 2001, when they chose Lauren Jackson.
