5) Dallas Wings (via Washington and New York): Chelsea Dungee, SG, Arkansas

The Wings used their first three picks to completely rebuild their frontcourt around Collier and Kuier, but Dungee will complement the duo quite well moving forward.

At Arkansas, Dungee averaged 22.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 steals last season, becoming the Razorbacks' all-time leading scorer with 2,147 points. The third-team All-American in 2021 should be able to immediately contribute in Dallas as the Wings continue to rebuild. 

6) New York Liberty (via Connecticut and Phoenix): Michaela Onyenwere, F, UCLA
