WNBA Most Valuable Player Elena Delle Donne of the Washington Mystics was voted unanimously to the 2019 All-WNBA first team.
Delle Donne, who was named on all 43 ballots Sunday from a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters, was the only 2018 First Team selection to repeat the honor this season.
The 6-foot-5 forward-guard averaged 19.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game and became the first WNBA player to shoot at least 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from 3-point distance and 90 percent from the free-throw line.
Joining her on the All-WNBA first team are Chicago Sky guard Courtney Vandersloot, Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner, Los Angeles Sparks guard Chelsea Gray and Seattle Storm forward Natasha Howard. Griner earned her fifth All-NBA honor, including her second on the first team.
The 2019 All-WNBA second team consists of Connecticut Sun forward Jonquel Jones, Sparks forward Nneka Ogwumike, Las Vegas Aces center Liz Cambage, Sky guard Diamond DeShields and Minnesota Lynx guard Odyssey Sims.
