The 2011 NBA Draft is just 4 days away and yesterday word came, on who would be in the “Green Room” on draft night.
The “Green Room” is the location on draft night where these players can sit just off the stage with their agent, friends & family. There were 15 players invited into the green room to sit, as that’s who the NBA believes will be a part of the lottery. Other players are welcome to attend, they can sit in the stands with the fans and still come up onto the stage when/if their name is called.
The 15 players invited include: Kyrie Irving (Duke), Derrick Williams (Arizona), Brandon Knight (Kentucky), Enes Kanter (Turkey), Kemba Walker (UConn), Jonas Valanciunas (Lithuania), Jan Vesely (Czech Republic), Kawhi Leonard (San Diego St.), Chris Singleton (Florida St.), Klay Thompson (Washington St.), Tristan Thompson (Texas), Jimmer Fredette (BYU), Marcus Morris (Kansas), Alec Burks (Colorado), Markieff Morris (Kansas).
In the past, other names have been added to the list and subsequently-the Green Room. Possible candidates include: Bismack Biyombo (Congo), Nikola Vucevic (USC), Marshon Brooks (Providence), Jordan Hamilton (Texas) as these are players that could possibly ‘crack’ the lottery.
Stay tuned all year round for TWolves news, information & updates. Thanks for reading and GO WOLVES!
