NEW YORK — After spending her life in South Carolina, A’ja Wilson is headed for Las Vegas. The consensus national player of the year was the No. 1 selection by the Aces in Thursday’s WNBA draft held at Nike’s New York headquarters.
“It’s such a great feeling, just an amazing way to cap off my collegiate career,” Wilson said. “My heart was pounding before she announced the pick.”
“I think it’s a great place, and a great atmosphere,” Wilson said of Las Vegas. “I want to become very consistent with my outside jump shot, people are going to play me for the drive. I think my quickness as a ‘big’ is something I can bring.”
Thursday night, Wilson was given a surprise video by her longtime favorite player, Blake Griffin.
