WNBA

Delle Donne second in WNBA voting: Former WNBA MVPs Maya Moore of the Minnesota Lynx and Elena Delle Donne of the Washington Mystics are the leading vote-getters after the first fan returns of WNBA All-Star Voting.

The first 15 days of fan voting generated 37 percent more votes (489,583) than the same period in 2017 (357,882). The 15th WNBA All-Star Game will take place on July 28 at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

Under the revamped format for Verizon WNBA All-Star 2018, a pool of 22 All-Stars will be selected without regard for conference affiliation through voting by fans (40 percent of the vote), current WNBA players and head coaches (20 percent each), and a national panel of sportswriters and broadcasters (20 percent).

The two All-Stars, regardless of conference, who receive the highest overall vote totals will serve as team captains and draft their respective rosters from the remaining pool of 20 All-Stars.
