Rules For the 1st and 2nd Rounds

In the first round of the draft, each team has five minutes to decide which player they would like to select. During this time, the team can also propose a trade with another team before making their final selection. The NBA Commissioner then will announce the selection and the player, wearing a cap sporting the team’s logo, comes up to the stage to be congratulated and presented to the audience. In the second round, each team has two or less minutes to make their picks while the deputy commissioner assumes the commissioner’s role.

This Year’s “Green Room” Invitees

The NBA annually invites around 15–20 players to sit in the so-called “green room”, a special room set aside at the draft site for the invited players plus their families and agents. When their names are called, the player leaves the room and goes up on stage. Other players who are not invited are allowed to attend the ceremony. They sit in the stands with the fans and walk up on stage when (or if) they are drafted. The following 19 players were invited (listed alphabetically) to the 2016 NBA draft on June 18, one day before the 2016 NBA Finals ended. A record-high 5 different players were added to the green room listing before the beginning of the 2016 NBA draft commenced.
