Great question. Possibly because they picked the best available player, not the best player for their team? It really happens quite frequently. I haven't filtered thru all the trades, but before things got fast and furious, NYL with the to pick have more of a need for Lauren Cox than Sabrina Ionescu. But no way do they pick Cox as #1.#4 pick and she was not a "fit" I don't get it. How do you just draft someone and they did not fit into the offense...puzzling.
It would seem if NY was smart, they would trade away some of their guards to make room for Sabrina. I think Durr and Hartley are/were extraneous when considering adding Ionescu, but i'm not an expert by any stretch on their roster...
