The 2024 WNBA Draft has arrived with this year's event set for 7:30 p.m. ET at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City. Select prospects including Caitlin Clark, Cameron Brink, Kamilla Cardoso and Angel Reese were invited to the draft as usual, and thy will get to walk up on stage and greet commissioner Cathy Engelbert when their name is called. 

The players and their families won't be the only ones in attendance this year, however. For the first time since 2016, fans will be able to buy tickets to watch the draft in person. 

"We are focused on creating elevated events that WNBA fans won't want to miss, at a time when the energy for the WNBA has never been higher," Engelbert stated in a press release. "Last season resulted in our most-watched-regular season in over two decades, our highest total attendance in 13 years and set record figures across WNBA digital and social platforms. As the official start to the WNBA season, we knew the WNBA Draft 2024 presented by State Farm should be transformed into a larger, fan-focused event to celebrate the incredible talent set to enter the draft."

Ahead of the big night, here's everything you need to know:

Iowa guard Caitlin Clark, whose historic college career came to an end in the Hawkeyes' loss in the national championship game, is going to be the No. 1 overall pick. Her unique shooting and playmaking abilities make her one of the best perimeter prospects to ever enter the league. 

Stanford center Cameron Brink, South Carolina center and Final Four Most Outstanding Player Kamilla Cardoso and Tennessee forward Rickea Jackson will likely round out the lottery in some order. After that, however, there is much less certainty. A number of injuries and players returning to school has made the back half of the first round more unpredictable.
