It's still too early to rule out the possibility of a shortened season. And even if the 2020 season doesn't happen, there's a cohort of draft entrants who have moved on from college and need to be divvied up among the teams, even if only contractually.
I feel for the players, who (as Lauren Cox described) will miss out on the "glam" effect of congregating in New York City with their families, coaches and fellow draftees, but this even will bring some much needed buzz to an otherwise desolate landscape.
Guessing the only way to get the logistics working with the players virtually being available for comments etc is to supply the results of the draft ahead of time to all concerned and keep it under wraps. Then the virtual technology connections could be made and some semblance of give and take between the teams, draftees and analysts could be made
Well on plus side- The absence of any live sporting events will make the draft more of a watchable event by default for any sports fan. It should even get more coverage with no moving the latter stages to ESPN News.
In my opinion, they should delay the draft until they know what is happening to the season. Why lock college players out of the possibility of returning to college next year if there is no WNBA season whatsoever in 2020?
