The Chicago Sky acquired the seventh overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft and center Nikolina Milic from the Minnesota Lynx on Sunday.

The Lynx, in turn, received the eighth overall pick in the draft, forward Sika Kone, Chicago’s second-round selection in the 2025 draft and the rights to swap the Sky’s first-round pick in 2026.

“We are excited to strengthen our draft position once again in a year with many top prospects,” Sky general manager Jeff Pagliocca said. “We thank Sika for her many contributions to the Chicago Sky and wish her success in her next role.”

The Sky now own the third overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft (from the Phoenix Mercury) in addition to Nos. 7 and 13 (from the Dallas Wings via the Indiana Fever).

“This trade in the WNBA Draft continues our focus on building a foundation for sustained success,” said Cheryl Reeve, Lynx head coach and president of basketball operations.

Minnesota has two selections in the 2024 draft: No. 8 and No. 31 (third round) overall.

Milic, who turned 30 on Friday, averaged 5.9 points and 2.4 rebounds in 39 games (three starts) last season for the Lynx.

Kone, 21, contributed 3.6 points and 3.0 rebounds in 9.3 minutes in 20 games off the bench for the Sky.
