NBA Draft 2011: Green Room Invite List Swells To 15

The NBA Draft will take place on Thursday and ESPN's Chad Ford has been keeping tabs on just who you'll be able to see walking up to the podium with a goofy suit. Hopefully a suit along the lines of Samaki Walker's. The green room invite list is out and 15 of the NBA's most highly-regarded prospects will be waiting for their names to be called. Here is the complete database of invitees:

Kyrie Irving (Duke); Derrick Williams (Arizona); Enes Kanter (Turkey); Brandon Knight (Kentucky); Kemba Walker (UConn); Jonas Valanciunas (Lithuania); Jan Vesely (Czech Republic); Kawhi Leonard (San Diego St.); Chris Singleton (Florida St.); Klay Thompson (Washington St.); Tristan Thompson (Texas); Jimmer Fredette (BYU); Marcus Morris (Kansas); and Alec Burks (Colorado).

A 15th name has been added - Markieff Morris of Kansas. Markieff is Marcus Morris' twin and also widely considered to be a top 20 draft pick.

The Rockets have been linked with each of the last few names on that list asides from Fredette (who skipped a workout in Houston) and Burks.
