Lastly, and most visibly, the NBA Draft decision makers have come out with their Green Room list. It's filled with all the familiar faces for the most part:

  • Aaron Gordon
  • Andriean Payne
  • Andrew Wiggins
  • Dante Exum
  • Dario Saric
  • Doug McDermott
  • Elfrid Payton
  • Gary Harris
  • Jabari Parker
  • James Young
  • Julius Randle
  • Jusuf Nurkic
  • Marcus Smart
  • Nik Stauskas
  • Noah Vonleh
  • Rodney Hood
  • T.J. Warren
  • Tyler Ennis
  • Zach LaVine
  • and Shabazz Napier

Joel Embiid was on this list when it was leaked a few days ago, but since then and now a few things have changed. According to his agent, he will not be taking part in the Green Room pageantry. That doesn't mean he still can't go up there and get his hat, he can, and most likely will. But he'll do the Shabazz Muhammad thing where he is watching the draft in an adjacent hotel and not subjecting himself to close up TV camera shots after getting passed all the time.

The Green room is to the right of the media row, separated by photographers. It gets a little too close for comfort.
