Strengths:


Standing 7'1" with a 7'3.5" wingspan and 255-pound frame, Alex Len is a prototypical NBA center… Uses his length to alter and block shots in the paint… Is deceivingly athletic for his size and is very active on both ends of the floor… A very good rebounder, especially on the offensive end, where he routinely fights for position and creates easy second-chance opportunities for himself… Has the size and foot speed to defend his own position and to hedge and potentially switch in screen-roll situations… Despite a limited arsenal of moves in the post, he is effective there due to his size and toughness, fighting for position early in possessions… Sets hard screens and does the little things to help create for his teammates offensively… Still a raw player and has a lot of room for further development… Very coachable.

Weaknesses:


Post game still needs work, as he primarily gets by at the college level with his size and athleticism… Is not as functionally strong as one might expect a seven-foot, 255-pounder to be… Can be undisciplined on the defensive end at times – averaged 4.1 fouls per 40 minutes as a sophomore… Underwent surgery to stabilize a partial stress fracture in his left ankle in early May – recovery time is projected to be four to six months… The injury, while not expected to affect his longterm health, will keep him from going through athletic testing at the combine and from working out with individual teams during the run up to the draft… Will miss summer league play and may not be ready for the start of training camp, or possibly the regular season, in the fall.
