2024 WNBA Draft on Sling TV

Sling TV’s Orange base plan includes ESPN for just $40.00/mo. It literally does not get cheaper than that.

The only drawback of the Orange plan (versus Sling Blue, also $40.00/mo) is that it can only stream on one device at a time. But remember, with a streaming service, you can add and subtract services month-to-month. No long-term commitments.

Some of these athletes have another year of eligibility for college ball, and haven’t decided yet, so don’t count on all those names being called come Draft Night. Caitlin Clark is fairly certain to be the No. 1 overall pick — last year’s No. 1 pick was Aliyah Boston.
