Now that we have officially reached NBA Draft week, many involved will soon begin making the trek to be part of the live event. That includes the prospects, at least 10 of them.

ESPN's Chad Ford reported the list of those invited to the green room for the June 27 draft:

Nerlens Noel
Victor Oladipo
Otto Porter Jr.
Alex Len
Anthony Bennett
* Ben McLemore
* Trey Burke
* Michael Carter-Williams
* C.J. McCollum
* Cody Zeller

No surprises among the invited bunch, which is the point (As ProBasketballTalk.com notes, nobody wants another Rashard Lewis situation). Based on recent years, the list could grow over the next couple of days with players like UCLA's Shabazz Muhammad, Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk and Greece's Giannis Antetokounmpo.

So unless the team goes way, way outside the box, we will see some player sporting Wizards gear on Thursday night. Unless of course they trade the pick. At this late date - and for largely draft night fun reasons - let's hope they don't do that.
