In one of the deepest drafts in recent memory, the NBA Draft on Thursday night had 4 SEC players land in the first round, led by Shaedon Sharpe, who was on Kentucky’s roster last season.

Auburn’s Jabari Smith was the first SEC player off the board, after Paolo Banchero and Chet Holmgren went Nos. 1 and 2.

“Ultimately I just want to win championships and be labeled as a winner, always deep in the playoffs, somebody always competing for championships,” Smith said, via the Associated Press. “That’s what I want to be.”

Sharpe, who is 6-foot-6 and from Canada, was a five-star recruit who committed to Kentucky but never played for the Wildcats. He intended on redshirting his first season, but instead decided to declare for the draft.

“Going from high school to college and not playing your college season and then straight to the NBA,” Sharpe said, via the Associated Press. “It’s quite the journey but every step of the way I’ve just fought and had fun with it.”

Auburn’s Walker Kessler was the No. 22 pick, and Kentucky’s TyTy Washington was the No. 29 pick, and both of them are heading to Minnesota.

Here are the SEC selections:

  • Jabari Smith, No. 3, Auburn, Houston Rockets
  • Shaedon Sharpe, No. 7, Kentucky, Portland Trail Blazers
  • Tari Eason, No. 17, LSU, Houston Rockets
  • Walker Kessler, No. 22, Auburn, Memphis Grizzlies traded to Minnesota
  • TyTy Washington, No. 29, Kentucky, Memphis Grizzlies traded to Minnesota
  • Jaylin Williams, No. 34, Arkansas, Oklahoma City Thunder
  • Kennedy Chandler, No. 38, Tennessee, San Antonio Spurs traded to Memphis
