Alex Len

Scouting Report

Having proved himself against NCAA - and international - competition, Len has a good chance to become a top-10 pick in this year's draft. The Ukrainian center decided to leave Maryland following his sophomore season after leading the ACC with 78 blocks and ranking in the top five with 7.8 rebounds per game. Len was the second-leading scorer for the Terrapins in 2012-13, averaging 11.9 points en route to earning honorable mention all-conference honors. He was also named to the conference's all-defensive squad. Len scored in double figures in 26 of 38 games last season and had at least one block in all but four contests. He had arguably his best all-around performance against then-No. 3 Kentucky on Nov. 9 with a career-high 23 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks. That game matched Len up against potential No. 1 pick Nerlens Noel, who was held to four points in 26 minutes. Before joining the Terps, Len had a strong performance at the 2010 Under-18 European championships, averaging 16.0 points, 11.4 rebounds and 4.3 blocks in nine games. Len, who will turn 20 less than two weeks before the draft, didn't participate in workouts at the NBA combine reportedly because of a partial stress fracture in his left ankle, which required surgery. Len was a gymnast in his native country until switching to basketball at 10 years old. He showcased his talent by cartwheeling for a slam dunk during his first Maryland Madness.
