Brittany Brewer Drafted 17th by Atlanta Dream

Lady Raider Brittany Brewer was drafted 17th overall (there are 12 WNBA teams, so technically it is the second round) by the Atlanta Dream. Atlanta had the worst record in the WNBA last year, so you’d expect Brewer to get a lot of playing time. As a total aside, I sort of love the Dream’s logo.

Dream head coach Nicki Collen had this about Brewer:

β€œI am thrilled to welcome Brittany to the Dream family,” Collen said. β€œBrittany’s greatest strengths are running the floor and finishing around the rim. She has great hands and a solid pivot foot and can score in a variety of ways around the rim. Brittany is working to develop her shot to the three-point line consistently and I am excited to see how we can aid in her growth here in Atlanta.”

ESPN liked the pick of Brewer 17th overall because she’s a true center:

The Dream had the worst record in the league last year, but this is fresh start of sorts with the moves the team made in the offseason and this draft. Brewer is an intriguing pick because she was one of rare true centers in this draft; she averaged 16.6 points and 10.3 rebounds this season for Texas Tech.

Congrats Brittany! We wish you the absolute best!
