NBA Draft Green Room Invitations Announced
The NBA announced today which players earned invitations to sit in the green room during the upcoming draft. The list reflects a league-wide consensus about which players will be selected at the top of the draft.
The league invited twelve college players -- Kyrie Irving (Duke), Derrick Williams (Arizona), Brandon Knight (Kentucky), Kemba Walker (UConn), Kawhi Leonard (San Diego State), Chris Singleton (Florida State) Klay Thompson (Washington State), Jimmer Fredette (BYU), Alec Burks (Colorado) as well as twins Marcus and Markieff Morris (Kansas).
Three international players -- Enes Kanter (Turkey), Jonas Valanciunas (Lithuania) and Jan Vesely (Czech Republic) -- made the cut.
The most noteworthy absence from the list is Bismack Biyombo (Congo) who has been rumored to go as high as No. 5 to Toronto.
