It's official: Sun take Charles No. 1 overall

The Connecticut Sun have made it official: They've taken UConn's Tina Charles with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 WNBA Draft.

At the draft in New Jersey, Charles took the stage and smiled for photos holding the Sun's blue jersey.

Now comes the interesting part. Minnesota owns the second and third picks, and don't be surprised if Virginia's Monica Wright is taken with one of those. Will the Lynx also take Jayne Appel? Or will they go another way? How they chose will likely have a trickle-down effect through the first round, including on the Sun at No. 7, where they're likely looking at a guard or versatile small forward.
