Draft green room invitation.


The NBA Draft takes place on Thursday night, and 16 players will be in the green room for the event, waiting for their names to be called. The Vertical's Jonathan Givony reported the full list, which features 15 players who starred in college basketball last season.

Wade Baldwin, Vanderbilt
Dragan Bender, Maccabi Tel Aviv
Jaylen Brown, Cal
Marquese Chriss, Washington
Deyonta Davis, Michigan State
Kris Dunn, Providence
Henry Ellenson, Marquette
Buddy Hield, Oklahoma
Brandon Ingram, Duke
Skal Labissiere, Kentucky
Dejounte Murray, Washington
Jamal Murray, Kentucky
Jakob Poeltl, Utah
Malachi Richardson, Syracuse
Domantas Sabonis, Gonzaga
Ben Simmons, LSU

The list features many of the players expected to be taken at the top of the Draft, including Simmons and Ingram, the two forwards almost universally considered to be the top two players in the draft.

Syracuse's Malachi Richardson, a late addition to Givony's list, shared the invite he received on Instagram.

The Draft is set to begin at 8:00 p.m. on June 23, live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
