Oregon guard Chris Duarte and Kentucky forward Isaiah Jackson were among the latest prospects invited by the NBA to attend the draft from the green room at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The NBA last week announced the draft would take place in person on July 29 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.

In addition to Duarte and Jackson, LSU guard Cameron Thomas was also invited to the green room. The trio joins 15 prospects that were invited last week to attend the draft, including Cade Cunningham, Jalen Green and Jalen Suggs among others.

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 invited 18 players so far with a couple of more expected to join the list.

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.
