2021 WNBA Draft: Sky select Shyla Heal with the eighth overall pick


The Sky’s new guard had an impressive WNBL season last year with the Townsville Fire leading the team to the grand final against Liz Cambage’s Southside Flyers.


Her assist-to-turnover ratio was 1.3, in line with top point guards in this draft class, Aari McDonald and Dana Evans.


She’s a player that can space the floor, is great at the pick and roll game and can match the Sky’s fast-paced style of play.


Heal’s father, Shane, played for the Minnesota Timberwolves during the 1996/97 season, but he’s better known for his decorated career with the Australian National Team and the NBL.


Early in the night, a league source told the Sun-Times the Sky weighed several trade options that included Gabby Williams.


Still, Williams committed to play for the French National Team Thursday morning and will not be with the Sky to start the 2021 season.
