BYU guard Jimmer Fredette has reportedly been invited to the green room for the 2011 NBA Draft. Posted by Ben Golliver. jimmer-fredette

Jimmer Fredette apparently isn't all hype.

The much ballyhooed guard was a national sensation as a senior at BYU, but many questioned how his game and physical tools would translate to the NBA level.

The early indications are that Fredette will translate at the lottery-pick level.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Fredette has been extended an invite to the green room for next week's 2011 NBA Draft.
Former Brigham Young guard Jimmer Fredette has been invited to the famed green room for the 2011 NBA Draft, which is scheduled next Thursday in Newark, N.J. 

Only draft picks expected to be taken with selections 1-14 are normally allowed in the green room.
A green room invite isn't a total guarantee that you'll be picked in the first half of the first round, but those invites aren't handed out lightly. 

This news will certainly fuel speculation as to where Fredette will land. Teams that have reported interest in him include the Sacramento Kings at No. 7, the Utah Jazz at No. 12, the Phoenix Suns at No. 13 and the Indiana Pacers at No. 15.

At this point, given all the buzz surrounding his draft workouts, it would be very difficult to see him falling past the Pacers, and the public pressure for the Jazz to take him at No. 12 is immense.

Why is Jimmer being invited to the green room on draft day ! Doesn't he know that White American NBA players are the minority in the NBA ! Maybe he should scream reversed discrimination or learn how to fly and contort his body like the brothers to make spectacular plays !

At this point, you can ride me for flooding, which is profane in itself...but sdmike, you pro level indicates how much you speak your mind on the sports forum, it's just that, you are going to have to get thicker skin. And destiny, give me a break, you are such a Jimmer fanboy, let's see the kid play first, my god! I'm not profane, I'm not an altar boy either.
