The 2019 NBA Draft went down Thursday at Barclays Center, home of the Nets, in Brooklyn. It was a big night for the league, which welcomed Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and others into its ranks.

The Pelicans did as expected by taking Williamson with the No. 1 overall pick. The 19-year-old was noticeably emotional in his television interview afterwards, fighting back tears as he credited his mother for supporting him so much.

The Grizzlies and Knicks also provided no surprises by taking Morant and R.J. Barrett, respectively.

The Hawks were the team to deliver the first big surprise by trading up with the Pelicans to No. 4 to take Virginia forward De’Andre Hunter. There were reportedly several teams in the hunt for that selection before Atlanta made its move to bolster a core led by Trae Young, John Collins and Kevin Huerter.

Here are complete results for the first round of the draft.
