Cade Cunningham and Jalen Green are among the 15 prospects invited to attend the NBA draft from the green room at the Barclays Center on July 29 in Brooklyn, New York.

The NBA on Thursday announced that the draft would take place in person after it was mostly held virtually last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The league was then expected to invite the top prospects to attend from the green room.

While no player attended the draft in person last year, the league invited about 20 players in 2019 to the green room, including Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and R.J. Barrett. The league has so far invited 15 players this year, with five more expected to join the list next week.

Of course, the 15 players invited so far are widely expected to be the first drafted in some order. Prospects like Alperen Sengun, Sharife Cooper, Ziaire Williams, Cameron Thomas and Usman Garuba are among the next group of players to be invited to the green room.

With the draft less than two weeks away, teams are busy conducting interviews and workouts as most prospects continue to try to improve their stock. Prospects often work out with teams right up until the day before the draft before enjoying the festivities with family and friends.
