Illinois center Meyers Leonard has been invited to attend the 2012 NBA Draft and sit in the green room. As Draft Express' Jonathan Givony notes below, that's a strong indication that Leonard is going to be selected in the first 20 picks or so. Leonard's stock has risen significantly since he declared for the pros and started workouts with NBA teams.

The NBA goes to great lengths to avoid a player sitting in the Green Room well into the 20s, and tend to err on the side of caution here.— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) June 25, 2012
