Phoenix Suns select Alex Len with the 5th pick in the NBA draft - Jun 27, 2013

When Maryland center Alex Len (7'1''-C-93) took the NBA draft stage Thursday night as the Suns No. 5 draft choice, it was not the first time that the 20-year-old Ukrainian outshined Kentucky center Nerlens Noel at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

To start the past college basketball season on Nov. 9, Lens Maryland team lost to Noels Kentucky team, but Len won the center matchup. Len posted 23 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks on Noel, the center who was often associated with the drafts top pick until Thursday night.

The Suns did not just think Len was the best center in this years draft. The Suns thought Len was the best player in this years draft.

The Suns brass started salivating once Cleveland dropped jaws by taking UNLVs Anthony Bennett first. Prior to that, the Suns discussed trading up in the draft order to be able to get Len, who teams began to believe was going to Cleveland.

The Suns passed on Noel and Kansas shooting guard Ben McLemore because of their belief in Lens high ceiling.

They carried out their theme of starting a franchise turnaround on young potential by trading up one spot to ensure they would get Kentucky 18-year-old Archie Goodwin, who they project as a point guard with top-notch athleticism at 6 feet 5.

The Suns also drafted a strong rebounder in Missouri 6-foot-9, 255-pound power forward Alex Oriakhi at No. 57.

Lens selection spurred speculation that the Suns could be trading center Marcin Gorat, but the Suns quickly squashed that by talking about Gortat helping to develop Len and the possibility of even playing them together.

Gortats trade value, being in his prime and in his final contract year, could be better at the February trade deadline.

Len is a 7-foot-1, 255-pound center who is fairly new to basketball after growing up as a gymnast in the small Ukraninan coal-mining town of Antratsit. As he shot up in height in his early teens, Len switched to basketball and eventually was part of the national team program when Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough first saw him as a member of Bostons staff.

Len moved to the U.S. two years ago to play at Maryland, where he quickly learned English and a different basketball style and culture. As a sophomore this season, Len averaged 11.9 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks and showed all-around potential while playing inconsistently.

Suns coach Jeff Hornacek called it a no-brainer to take Len over McLemore and Noel.

Anytime you can get a 7-1 guy with a long wingspan and hes athletic, hes got skills and hes 20 years old, its a bright piece for the future, Hornacek said. Its not very often you can get those type of players. Usually, theyre maybe not as mobile. Theyre just big kids who kind have been forced into playing basketball. You can look his production at Maryland and he didnt get the ball enough.

How many times has the Phoenix Suns organization had a 7-1 guy with that type of skill? So were very excited.

Len, who turned 20 on June 16, is mobile and agile enough to cover pick-and-roll and run with a transition team but big enough with a 7-3 1/2 wingspan to also be a rim protector. At the NBA draft combine, Len said that he thinks he will prove to be the best player from this years draft in a decade.

The Suns agreed.

I was really excited, Len said of being selected by the Suns. Im blessed that Phoenix selected me. I just cant wait to go to the city and meet my new team and coaches and be part of the Phoenix family.

I think the NBA has the best coaches. I cant wait to start working with them and my improvement is going to be better. Also, its better spacing so Im going to have more room to work on the block. Im also excited to play next to Goran Dragic. Hes a great player. He has great vision of the floor and he likes to play high tempo so I think it fits my game well.
