NEW YORK – Elena Delle Donne and Maya Moore are the early vote leaders for the WNBA All-Star game.
Delle Donne, who last year became the first ever rookie to lead all vote-getters, is once again topping the ballot released Tuesday.
The Chicago forward is joined in the Eastern Conference frontcourt by Tamika Catchings of the Indiana Fever and Angel McCoughtry of the Atlanta Dream. McCoughtry's teammate, rookie Shoni Schimmel, leads the East guards with Ivory Latta second.
Moore is leading the league in scoring. Minnesota's star forward is joined by Los Angeles' Candace Parker and Phoenix's Brittney Griner in the front court. Griner's teammate on the Mercury, Diana Taurasi, and the Lynx's Seimone Augustus lead the guards.
The starters will be announced on July 8. The reserves, who will be voted on by the league's coaches, will be revealed a week later.
The All-Star game is on July 19 in Phoenix.
