Green Room Invites

Draft Express has the list of those who received Green Room invites for next week's draft.

This is an exclusive list of players that the NBA has done its due diligence to confirm that they will be drafted in the lottery or not far after, compiled from a poll of NBA GMs conducted by Stu Jackson. Being invited to the Green Room means the player will sit with his family at the front of the theater in front of the commissioner, have his name called [hopefully] early in the draft, given a hat with his new team's logo on it, and then brought up to the podium to shake David Stern's hand.

Here's the list:
Adam Morrison, Tyrus Thomas, Rudy Gay, LaMarcus Aldridge, Andrea Bargnani, Brandon Roy, Marcus Williams, Randy Foye, Patrick O'Bryant, Shelden Williams, Ronnie Brewer, Cedric Simmons, Rodney Carney, J.J. Redick, Hilton Armstrong

Draft Express also has lists of the players who were invited to the Green Room for the drafts from 2003-2005.
