Nine Draft Candidates Sent Green Room Invites

The NBA has issued green room invites to nine 2019 NBA Draft candidates, Jonathan Givony of ESPN reports. They’ll also be sending an additional batch of approximately 11 at some point in the future.

Three Duke Blue Devils, a pair of prolific point guard prospects and two wings that squared off in the NCAA Tournament finale will all start making preparations for their draft day drip.

A total of 20 players were invited to the green room for last year’s draft so it stands to reason that the league would get back to around that number for 2019.
