SPOKANE, Wash. — The NBA has invited Gonzaga's Rui Hachimura and Brandon Clarke to the NBA Draft Green Room for this year's draft.

The Green Room is reserved for players expected to be drafted high in the first round and is the area closest to the podium, where NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announces the draft picks.

The news was reported by Draft Express's Jonathan Givony via Twitter, and the Gonzaga pairing join a list of at least 15 players, including Duke pairing Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett and Murray State star Ja Morant.

Mock drafts by multiple sports outlets have projected Clarke and Hachimura to go high in the first round, including inside the top 10.
