The Lynx will be McWilliams-Franklin's sixth WNBA team. She averaged 10.6 points and 5.4 rebounds per game last season while helping lead the New York Liberty to the Eastern Conference finals.

McWilliams-Franklin played three seasons with Lynx star Lindsay Whalen with the Connecticut Sun, reaching the WNBA finals twice. She also won a championship in 2008 with the Detroit Shock.

The Lynx also have the No. 1 and No. 4 picks in this year's draft.
