Delle Donne, Wilson named WNBA All-Star captains

As the top vote-getter for this year's All-Star Game, Delle Donne will serve as one of the team captains and will have the chance to select the first player for her team. This time she'll be facing a team captained by A'ja Wilson.

Las Vegas will have a lot of its hometown players to root for at the WNBA All-Star Game on July 27. As coach of the Detroit Shock, he led the Eastern Conference past the Western Conference 103-99 in the 2007 All-Star Game in Washington, D.C. As coach of the New York Liberty, his East team lost to the West 130-121 in the 2017 All-Star Game in Seattle.

Las Vegas Aces head coach Bill Laimbeer and Washington Mystics head coach Mike Thibault have earned spots as the head coaches for AT&T WNBA All-Star 2019.

The 23-year-old second year guard joins Kayla McBride of the Las Vegas Aces, Jewell Loyd of the Seattle Storm and Chelsea Gray of the Los Angeles Sparks as backcourt starters.

Laimbeer will coach Delle Donne's team as the Aces have the best record in the league and Thibault will lead Wilson's since the Mystics have the second-best mark. Current players and a national media panel accounted for 25 percent of the vote each. The two captains were chosen by virtue of having the most votes from fans.

Liz Cambage has been named a starter for this month's WNBA All-Star game. She is third in free throws made (56) and sixth in attempts (61). Jones, Loyd and Wilson are now two-time All-Star selections.

Howard and Nurse are both first-time All-Stars.

The WNBA added festivities for the night before the All-Star Game with a 3-point shootout, skills competition and beach party that Cambage will DJ at with Snoop Dogg and Ariana Grande.

Wilson said that she might have to negotiate to get into the DJ booth with her teammate. League-wide, she is fourth in total minutes played (494) and seventh in points (240).
