NEW YORK -- Rookie Maya Moore of the Minnesota Lynx has the top-selling jersey in the WNBA this season.
The No. 1 draft pick out of Connecticut leads the list announced Monday, ahead of Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks. Parker is sidelined with a knee injury and had held the top ranking since October 2008.
Moore is averaging 14 points and five rebounds for the Lynx, who are second in the Western Conference behind Phoenix.
Essence Carson of the New York Liberty is third on the list, followed by Lauren Jackson of the Seattle Storm, Sylvia Fowles of the Chicago Sky and Marion Jones of the Tulsa Shock.
The list is based on sales on NBAStore.com from October 2010 through June.
Moore's jersey is the second best-selling jersey for a No. 1 WNBA draft pick since Parker.
The Lynx ranked No. 1 in team sales, followed by Seattle, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Indiana.
