NBA NEWS - WNBA announces new process for selecting All-WNBA Teams
 

 

 

It became clear that the most deserving players, regardless of position, should be recognized - Teams will continue to be based on position, while voting for the WNBA All-Rookie Team will remain “positionless - A national panel of 56 sportswriters and broadcasters submit votes for 10 of the 12 season-ending awards

 

NEW YORK, NY USA

Friday August 5, 2022

The WNBA announced today that a new process for the selection of the 2022 All-WNBA First and Second Teams will be implemented. Prior to this season, voters were required to select players based on position, resulting in the selection of two guards, one center and two forwards for each team. Voting for this year’s All-WNBA teams will be conducted without regard to a player’s position.

“As we evaluated our approach to end-of-season awards and spoke with our general managers, head coaches and others, it became clear that the most deserving players, regardless of position, should be recognized at season’s end,” said WNBA Head of League Operations Bethany Donaphin. “Our game continues to evolve. As greater emphasis is placed on spacing and pace of play, the players have expanded their multifaceted skill sets. This process change allows us to celebrate the best of the best going forward.”

The WNBA will present 12 end-of-season awards following the conclusion of the 2022 regular season: All-WNBA First and Second Teams; WNBA Defensive Player of the Year; WNBA Most Improved Player; WNBA Most Valuable Player; WNBA Rookie of the Year; WNBA Sixth Player of the Year; Kim Perrot Sportsmanship Award; WNBA All-Defensive First and Second Teams; WNBA All-Rookie Team; WNBA Coach of the Year; Basketball Executive of the Year; and the WNBA Peak Performers.

A national panel of 56 sportswriters and broadcasters submit votes for 10 of the 12 season-ending awards. The Basketball Executive of the Year honor is selected by the league’s basketball executives and the Peak Performers awards are presented to the regular-season statistical leaders in points per game, rebounds per game, and assists per game. Voting for the WNBA All-Defensive First and Second Teams will continue to be based on position, while voting for the WNBA All-Rookie Team will remain “positionless.”
