Round 1 of the 2024 NBA draft began with Zaccharie Risacher, the first of four French players taken in the first round, being drafted by the Atlanta Hawks with the No. 1 overall pick. And it ended with the 2024 NBA Finals champions Boston Celtics drafting Creighton’s Baylor Scheierman with pick No. 30.

Which fan bases should be happy after what their favorite team did on Day 1, such as the Minnesota Timberwolves trading up to draft Rob Dillingham? Who should be wondering about the players who fell down the draft board, such as Dalton Knecht?

It’s time to break down what happened Wednesday night in New York’s Barclays Center. ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, Jeremy Woo and Kevin Pelton share their winners, surprises and biggest questions that are left after 30 picks go off the board in Round 1.

We’ll be back for Round 2 on Thursday at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN.
