The best current WNBA players are the most talented and skilled players in the Women's National Basketball Association today. These female basketball players will be leading their teams and the league in points, rebounds, assists and other statistical categories. If they are not already, many will also be remembered among the top WNBA players of all time too.

While the WNBA does not get nearly as much credit as other basketball leagues, that doesn't mean WNBA players are any less talented. In fact, many of these women are also among the best female basketball players in the world right now. Elena Delle Donne, Seimone Augustus, Sue Bird, Maya Moore, Angel McCoughtry, Tina Charles and Candace Parker, for example, are all also Olympic gold medalists as they helped the U.S. National Women's Basketball Team win their fifth-straight gold at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Some of the other women on this list might not have the lengthy credentials as the veterans but they have quickly made their mark as leaders in the league. Nneka Ogwumike and Glory Johnson, for example, were both drafted in 2012 and in their rookie season challenged the season pros quite well. There are also many other names that could easily be on this list once their professional careers get into full swing, such as 2013 WNBA top draft pick Brittney Griner.

So whether these top current WNBA players are already considered legends of the league or are just starting to peak in their careers, they are the best female professional basketball players in the country right now.
