The first wave of invitees includes Matas Buzelis, Devin Carter, Stephon Castle, Donovan Clingan, Ron Holland, Dalton Knecht, Zaccharie Risacher, Tidjane Salaun, Alex Sarr, Reed Sheppard, Ja'Kobe Walter and Cody Williams.

All 12 of those players are projected lottery picks, according to ESPN's most recent mock draft.
