About an hour before Alex Len was selected No. 5 by the Phoenix Suns, he and his girlfriend, Essence Townsend, recorded a video using Instagram.
Len didn’t look nervous and Townsend was full of smiles.
The 7-foot-1 Ukrainian is said to be full of potential.
Len averaged 11.9 points and 7.8 rebounds per game during his sophomore season in school.
