Suns Draft Candidate: Alex Len

Leading up to the 2013 NBA Draft, which takes place Thursday, June 27 in New York, ArizonaSports.com will run features the likely candidates for the Phoenix Suns to consider with their 5th overall selection.

Alex Len - Maryland - Center

Len is a prospect whose stock has risen substantially late in the process. In fact, there are several analysts who believe that the Maryland center will be the first overall choice in Thursday's draft.

The 7-foot-1 Ukrainian earned honorable mention All-ACC and was a member of the All-ACC Defensive Team after leading the conference in blocked shots, at 2.1 per game.

Len didn't dominate offensively, averaging only 11.9 points per game (second on team) and only had two 20-point games during the 2012-13 for a Terrapins squad that went 25-13 and advanced to the semifinals of the postseason NIT.

Scouting Report Snippets

Chad Ford of ESPN points out Len's good touch around the basket, post-passing ability and shot-blocking prowess as strengths in his game. But he adds that Len needs to get stronger, can float on both ends of the floor and questions his toughness.

Draft Express applauds Len's fundamentals, soft hands, touch and his physical profile. They cite his ability to finish in the post, footwork and his left hand as areas that need improvement.
