All aboard the Alex Len bandwagon.

Minnesota (McLemore) and Portland (Oladipo) has shown interests in trading up. But, that's a bit far at 9th and 10th. Who's gonna be there? Let's forget this trade talk.

 

Minnesota wants Oladipo, check out the other thread.

One NBA Director of Scouting called Maryland C Alex Len's foot issue "real scary."

Len underwent surgery earlier this month to repair a stress fracture in his ankle. A bad wheel isn't good for a guy carrying around a 7'1/250 frame. Yao Ming, Bill Walton, Sam Bowie, Greg Oden and Andrew Bynum serve as cautionary tales for general managers scouting this year's class. Len may have very well been a top-5 pick if not for his injury.

 

It looks like Len's foot injury is a little bit for serious than thought.

Even without the injury concerns, Len is a stiff. No thanks. We don't need to spend a lottery pick to get a tall guy to sit on the bench.

Yeah I agree. A hell

No to Len. He's the only guy that I wouldn't want out of the possibilities we could choose.

Im all about getting some thick athletic 7 footers.   He's still a project no doubt. But he gives us something we don't have, someone who is tough to root out of the post.  While he does know how to get into good position, none of his clips really show any polished offensive post moves.  But still, he'll allow our forwards to grab more boards, and he'd be great in pick and roll/pops.

Calling a tall white guy a stiff must be the NBA equilivant of a Nolan Norowacki adjectives for african american QBs.

Len without the foot injury is better than a 180 lb Noel...who Marcus Camby looks at and says damn eat a sandwich...Who Biyombo would have to mentor in showing post moves... Thats Raw!!

Len has a unique skill set n is worth a gamble if the doctors do not see this injury as chronic. Noel's knee and holding up in the league when healthy is a problem for three years at least...gotta wait for puberty with him.

As for the guards and small forwards..they have giant holes in their game outside of Burke. Olidipo has huge ball handling issues..(is my fave among the guards) which is like a WR who has issues catching.

Kind of a big issue.

Im with Koolkat on this one*..you see Len's skill set and not that many 7footers have that "AGILITY" (opposite of stiff) coordination and scoring awareness that should blossom in a more open NBA.

*still think Tavon will be better than Lafell or Allen.. Lol in his rookie year.

won't be upset with him---this draft really sucks, might as well swing for a potential franchise 7 foot big

    • But we don't have the complete list.  We only know the players we have been linked to because it was released by the player or his agent.  The team doesn't release their contact list, and not all meetings get released by the player or agent.  Anyway, we also talked with guys at the Senior Bowl, East-West Shrine game, and combine.  So most likely, we have at least had a conversation with every player that is a possibility.  And if the team feels comfortable with those meetings as well as what they saw on tape, scout reports, combine performance, pro day performance/interview, etc., then there may not be a reason to set up a formal meeting.
    • I don’t care if this is only 4 players, I think we should capitalize on the talent in this draft and get who we want.  Here’s 4 potential starters at critical spots:       Jamal Adams SS LSU 6’1 This guy elevates the defense.  Arguably more than any other player in the draft.  I know we want offense but Adams is hard to ignore if available.     John Ross WR Washington 5’11 188 4.22 I want a playmaker and this is a playmaker.  If Davis and Williams go first and he’s in the 20s, we’re trading up.  I believe this as much as raspberry milf juice.  This ain't just about 4.22.     Jordan Willis DE Kansas State 6’4 255 10” hands 33.5 arms Another defensive linemen? But we've got Peppers, CJ, and Addison! Yeah and now Horton and Delaire are going to be off the team.  This footballer is projected to go higher that a ton of people are surmising and has been having a meteoric rise (that is once online browser-writers realized how high scouts are looking at him)      Jeremy McNichols RB Boise State 5'9 214   I will call him speedy-rumble mctubberjackal.  Absolute ownage in many regards.
