Stanford star Cameron Brink is heading to Hollywood. The 6-foot-4 Naismith Defensive Player of the Year was the No. 2 pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft on Monday night in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Brink played in 135 games during her career at Stanford, starting in all but 13 contests. She enjoyed a tremendous senior campaign in the 2023-24 season, averaging 17.4 points, 11.9 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game.

The Cardinal finished the season with a 30-6 record, which included a 15-3 mark in Pac-12 play.

Los Angeles finished last year's WNBA season with a 17-23 record. The Sparks have won three WNBA championships, but the last one came in 2016.

Brink will bring a strong interior presence to Los Angeles on both ends of the floor. She's proven to be a great defenisve commodity and an excellent shot blocker on the floor. Brink is also capable of scoring in bunches.

For her career, Brink nearly averaged a double-double. She scored 14.0 points and grabbed 9.1 rebounds over the course of her four-year career with the Cardinal. Brink also blocked more than three shots per game for her career.
