Suns Draft Central

Center | 7’-1” | 225 lbs. | Maryland

Originally from the Ukraine, Alex Len spent the past two seasons playing at the University of Maryland. In his second season, Len put himself in the spotlight early on when he took on Nerlens Noel and the No. 3 ranked Kentucky Wildcats in the Terrapins’ first game of the season. Maryland lost 72-69, but Len kept his team in the contest with 23 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks. Over the course of the season he averaged 11.9 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. Despite moments of inconsistency, he showed a tantalizing amount of skill on the ball as a scorer and passer.

“The 7-1, 255-pound sophomore from Ukraine won’t turn 20 until mid-June, but is expected to be a lottery pick — and along with Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel — one of the top centers taken in this year’s NBA draft. After starting and finishing his sophomore year strong — including a 23-point, 12-rebound, four-blocked shot performance in a season-opening loss to Noel and the defending champion Wildcats, as well as averaging 15.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and 5.5 blocks in his team’s last two games in the NIT — Len declared himself ready for the NBA.”
