The NBA's Green Room invitees list is sort of the group of players the league thinks will be taken in the lottery. An official, OFFICIAL mock draft of sorts, if you will.

And the group of players invited to partake has been released (via Chad Ford):

Kyrie Irving
Derrick Williams
Enes Kanter
Brandon Knight
Kemba Walker
Jonas Valanciunas
Jan Vesely
Kawhi Leonard
Chris Singleton
Klay Thompson
Tristan Thompson
Jimmer Fredette
Marcus Morris
Alec Burks

The most interesting player not on the list? Bismack Biyombo who some have going as No. 4 or 5 in the draft. Biyombo is a bit of a mystery, though most mock drafts have him going somewhere in the lottery.

It's a bit of a surprise that Chris Singleton received an invite, but the Florida State forward has shot up most mock drafts in the past few weeks with really strong workouts. He was considered a late first round pick a month ago, but has positioned himself as almost a sure fire lottery guy.

Also of note: Marcus, not Markieff Morris was invited to the Green Room. But you can be sure that Markieff will be with his brother. Both are certain first round picks, but most have Marcus going a little higher.

Bismack Biyombo = Saer Sene.

I read somewhere that he played one on none and loss. That is how bad he was offensively.
