Reeve discusses some of the hurdles WNBA teams will face in orchestrating their draft from remote sites, but also her pride in being the first pro league to have an event fans can watch live on television.

This season, the WNBA enters a new collective bargaining agreement with players. It's a major step not just for the WNBA, but for women's pro sports.  Reeve discusses some of the key points in the new CBA, but also some challenges it might present for franchises.

She also recaps the growth by Napheesa Collier, the Lynx' 1st-round pick from a year ago who won WNBA Rookie of the Year honors.

The conversation ends with Reeve expressing the pride she's had seeing former Lynx star Maya Moore's work against social injustice, and the chances Moore might return to basketball at some point in the future.
