5. Phoenix: Alex Len â€“ Maryland
19 years old, Sophomore
Even though we compared Len to Big Z earlier in the draft process, he also reminds us a lot of Pau Gasol. He’s long and athletic, and can do basically everything outside of pass the ball like the Spaniard. It’ll be interesting to see if he can dominate night in and night out at the next level… because the dude couldn’t even do it in college.
Phoenix is hoping he develops into their foundation. At this point, they really don’t seem to have a plan. Len should help change that.
Was this the right move?
