The 2023 NBA Draft is complete.

There were fireworks hours before the draft began as the Golden State Warriors reportedly swapped out Jordan Poole for Chris Paul in a stunning blockbuster deal with the Washington Wizards. But that proved to be the only major trade of the day.

The San Antonio Spurs kicked off Thursday night's proceedings from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, in expected fashion by taking Victor Wembanyama first overall. The draft really started at the second pick with the Charlotte Hornets, who somewhat surprisingly went with Brandon Miller over Scoot Henderson.

The Portland Trail Blazers ultimately didn't cash in the No. 3 pick for win-now talent to surround Damian Lillard with, instead adding yet another exciting young guard in Scoot Henderson.

To close out the top five, the Houston Rockets and Detroit Pistons each took a Thompson twin. Houston first picked Amen Thompson followed by Detroit's selection of Ausar Thompson. Amen and Ausar became the first set of brothers to ever be selected in the top 10 of the same NBA draft.

Those were just the first five of 58 total selections made, with several trades mixed in throughout the night. Here's a full breakdown of every pick and trade:
