Fresh off a trip to the Western Division Finals, the Swarm now hold three consecutive first-round selections with picks #2, #3, and #4 in this year's upcoming draft in September. Minnesota also holds the final selection in the first-round with the #10 pick, giving the team a league-high four first-round selections.
