USA TODAY Sports

At least 13 players have reportedly been invited to the "green room" for Thursday's 2013 NBA Draft.

Chad Ford of ESPN.com reports the names of 10 players who have been invited to the "green room" for Thursday's 2013 NBA Draft.

Those invited are: 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) and Cody Zeller (Indiana).

Several others players, including Georgia's Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Pittsburgh's Steven Adams, UCLA's Shabazz Muhammad, Russia's Sergey Karasev, Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk and Greece's Giannis Antetokounmpo, could be extended invites.

An invitation to the green room doesn't guarantee any particular selection but invitees rarely fall too far out of the lottery.

The Portland Blazers hold the No. 10 pick in Thursday's NBA Draft. McCollum, Zeller, Caldwell-Pope, Adams and Olynyk worked out in Portland while Len, who is injured, also met with the team.

Caldwell-Pope and Adams are the only players currently in DraftExpress.com's top 10 who didn't receive an invite yet.

Caldwell-Pope is the only player currently in Ford's top 10 who didn't receive an invite yet.

Update (Monday): Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reports that Caldwell-Pope will also be in the green room.

Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reports on Twitter three additional names.

Steven Adams, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Sergey Karasev are last three green room invites for Thursday's NBA Draft, per source.
