WNBA[edit]

McGee-Stafford was drafted 10th overall by the Chicago Sky in the 2016 WNBA Draft. In her rookie season, she was ranked 7th in the league in blocks per game and was named to the WNBA All-Rookie Team by the end of the season. The Sky finished 18-16 with the number 4 seed in the league. McGee-Stafford would become the starting center for the Sky halfway through season and hold the position during the playoffs. They received a bye to the second round elimination game, where they defeated the Atlanta Dream, advancing themselves to the semi-finals. During her first playoff game, McGee-Stafford broke the WNBA playoff rookie record for blocks in a game with 6. In the semi-finals, the Sky were defeated by the Los Angeles Sparks 3-1 in the series.
