PICK #5: ALEX LEN

Cohen’s Analysis: As a result of Phoenix’s surprising start many have ignored Len and his injury concerns and lack of production. But at some point he will garner more attention from the critics. Len has dealt with major ankle problems and when he has played he has looked lost and fundamentally challenged.

BOLD PREDICTION: With the improved play of Miles Plumlee at center and with the Suns in contention for a playoff spot this year, you have to start to wonder if Phoenix will close the door on Len before it ever really begins by shopping him in a potential trade. The Suns have a lot of assets to work with, including four possible First Round draft picks in 2014. They may decide to deal Len and picks for a proven commodity while the rookie still has some trade value.
