WNBA All Star Game Predictions: Rosters

At WNBA All-Star 2024, set for Saturday, July 20 in Phoenix, the USA Basketball Women’s National Team and the WNBA All-Stars—selected through a mix of fan, player, media, and coach vote—will face off.

The 2024 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game will air on ABC at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT. The three-time WNBA champion Phoenix Mercury’s home court, Footprint Center, will host the game, which is already expected to be sold out. The AT&T WNBA All-Star Game will be the centerpiece of two full days of WNBA events in addition to honoring the farewell of WNBA players selected to compete in the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

In addition, on Friday, July 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. ET at Footprint Center, there will be the Kia WNBA Skills Challenge and ESPN’s STARRY® WNBA 3-Point Contest activities. Tickets for the Friday activities are still available here.

A nationwide panel of sportswriters and broadcasters (25 percent), current WNBA players (25 percent), and fans (50 percent) cast their votes in the first round of voting for the All-Stars.

The following, in alphabetical order, were the top 10 vote-getters after accounting for the votes cast by media, fans, and players: Dearica Hamby (Los Angeles Sparks), Sabrina Ionescu (New York Liberty), Arike Ogunbowale (Dallas Wings), Breanna Stewart (New York), A’ja Wilson (Las Vegas Aces), and Jackie Young (Las Vegas). Jackie Young (Las Vegas), Aliyah Boston (Indiana Fever), Caitlin Clark (Indiana), Napheesa Collier (Minnesota Lynx), and Kahleah Copper (Phoenix).

Placing among the top 10 automatically earns Boston, Clark, Hamby, and Ogunbowale—who do not currently play for the USA Women’s National Team 5-on-5—a spot on Team WNBA and a chance to participate in the 2024 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game.

Following that, the 12 WNBA head coaches tallied their votes to decide which players would fill the remaining spots on the 12-player Team WNBA roster. Here are the names of the next 36 most popular vote-getters who did not already make the USA Women’s National Team. Coaches could not cast votes for their own players. Each coach was required to cast a vote for five players in the frontcourt, three guards, and four more players at any position.

The remaining eight players selected for the 2024 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game are as follows, listed alphabetically: DeWanna Bonner (Connecticut Sun), Allisha Gray (Atlanta Dream), Brionna Jones (Connecticut), Jonquel Jones (New York), Kayla McBride (Minnesota), Kelsey Mitchell (Indiana), Nneka Ogwumike (Seattle Storm), and Angel Reese (Chicago Sky).

In the fan vote portion of the election, Boston (618,680 votes) and Clark (700,735 votes), who are teammates from Indiana, came in first and second, respectively. Wilson (607,300), Stewart (424,135), and Reese (381,518) rounded out the top five in the fan poll.

Head coaches of Team WNBA and USA Basketball Women’s National Team will select the starting lineup for the AT&T WNBA All-Star 2024. In the case that a player from the Women’s National Team is unable to participate in the AT&T WNBA All-Star 2024, USA Basketball will select a substitute. If a player from Team WNBA is unable to play, WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert will choose a stand-in player.

These are the rosters for the WNBA All-Stars of Team WNBA and the USA Basketball Women’s National Team (USA Women).
