CHICAGO (AP) -- In seven disappointing seasons, the Chicago Sky has never reached the WNBA playoffs or even posted a winning record.

But the addition of No. 2 draft pick Elena Delle Donne could be a game changer that helps the Sky finally turn the tide.

Della Donne, an 6-foot, 5-inch All-American from Delaware, brings a scoring touch and versatility for a Sky team that has talent but has lacked consistency.

"I think she's definitely key when you think about her talent, her skill set and her size," said Pokey Chatman, the team's third-year coach and general manager. "Then you talk about the deficiencies we had and she definitely addresses that. And (she's) a player who can swing to multiple positions."
