NBA Green Room Invitees

According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN, the list of Green Room Invitees has been finalized - "Steven Adams, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Sergey Karasev are last three green room invites for Thursday's NBA Draft, per source." - Jeff Goodman

This means that they will now join the list of:

Nerlens Noel (Kentucky)
Victor Oladipo (Indiana)
Otto Porter (Georgetown)
Alex Len (Maryland)
Anthony Bennett (UNLV)
Ben McLemore (Kansas)
Trey Burke (Michigan)
Michael Carter-Williams (Syracuse)
C.J. McCollum (Lehigh)
Cody Zeller (Indiana).

Added today:

Steven Adams (Pittsburgh)
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Georgia)
Sergey Karasev (Russia)

Now. Do you guys think that all 13 of these players will be taken in the lottery? If not who do you think will fall out and why?

Personally the only player i could see falling out of the lottery is Karasev because he is coming from European basketball so there is always translation issues!

The only guy I can

The only guy I can potentially see missing the lottery is Karasev, due to the fact he is a little more unknown and projected anywhere from 12-20.

It's going to be CJ McCollum. I just don't think many teams want and need combo guards.

Teams may not want combo

Teams may not want combo guards but every team could use his shooting ability.

The combo guard is becoming

The combo guard is becoming an intricate part of teams second units now. Players like Reggie Jackson, Gary Neal, and Nate Rob. are just a few examples.

MCW, Karasev or Steven Adams.

Drafts tend to follow themes a bit and I think the success of Lillard will see McCollum go in the lottery. I think MCW could potentially drop but more likely will be Karasev for the reasons stated above or Adams given his rawness.

Steven Adams

I think it will be Steven Adams I don't think he will fall past early twenties but I don't see him being drafted in the lottery. He has potential but he needs to be developed and that might take a few years. Lottery teams might not take a chance on him with the collection of bigs in this draft...

I would think with Karasev

I would think with Karasev being invited he has a promise

Can't help but notice that

Can't help but notice that Shabazz is not on this list. I know a lot of people have him in the top 10 still, but maybe he is going to tumble more than we think? A lot of teams are using analytics now and he rated very poorly on them.
