Davis heads list of NBA Draft night green room invitees

It means nothing, really. Being in the green room doesn’t impact your draft status. All it really says is that a very button down league that doesn’t want embarrassment is convinced these guys will go in the lottery.

Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress leaked the list of names of guys who got invited to the NBA Draft night green room (the holding room for television purposes). They are:

Thomas Robinson, Bradley Beal, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Harrison Barnes, Damian Lillard, Dion Waiters, Jeremy Lamb, Andre Drummond, Austin Rivers, John Henson, Tyler Zeller and Meyers Leonard.

No real surprises there, although it is possible Lamb or Leonard are there a little longer than expected.

So what big names did not make the list? Or, put another way, who is falling down the board and the league didn’t want the cameras on him? Jared Sullinger, Terrence Ross and Perry Jones III are the names that leap out. We knew Sullinger was falling, especially after his medial red flags. And teams are backing off Jones with concerns about his passion for the game and to improve.

Still, you shouldn’t read too much into this. Except for Anthony Davis, not much question there. Read whatever you want there.
