The New York Liberty selected UCLA forward Michaela Onyenwere with the No. 6 overall pick in the first round of the 2021 WNBA draft. A potent offensive threat, Onyenwere was UCLA's first two-time AP All-American.
With the 17th overall pick in the second round, the Liberty selected Baylor guard Didi Richards. Richards was a member of Baylor's 2019 National Championship team. She was one of the top defensive players in the country last year, earning the 2020 Naismith Defensive Player of the Year honor.
The Liberty added guard Valerie Higgins out of Pacific in the third round.
New York ended the night by selecting guard Marine Fauthoux with the No. 29 overall pick.
