Good signing for the money.

Interesting nugget - Miles Plumlee and Oleksiy "Alex" Len were teamates with the Suns in Len's rookie and sophore years.  Miles was in his 2nd year when Len was a rookie.

Best move of the offseason so far.  I really like Len's game.  

I would agree if he had a three point shot.

Almost 20 PER, solid rebounder, especially on the offensive end, extremely athletic, can block shots.  Just a solid, all-around player.  Only real negative is a lack of an outside shot, but just turned 25 so he can improve on that.

Yep, he can become a solid starter for us.  Looks like he's worked on the outside shot, took a lot more in the preseason.  Excited to see how he develops.

Len has NOT been good so far. 4 rebounds last night. He has to give more. He gets blocked by the rim a lot.

Edited.

I agree.  Someone needs to tell him that he definitely has skills.  I think he lacks confidence, which translates into inconsistency.  If he becomes consistent, then he would be a force to be reckoned with.

Never heard of him before but so far he looks like a steal. At 7'1" and 260 lbs he's a true NBA big that can rebound and block shots. Not a turrible defender and has shown he can hit a corner three. 25 years old.

Alex Len looks good - great signing.

He needs to hold unto the ball and stop getting blocked by the rim. 

Gotta keep his eyes locked on Trae and his hands at the ready.
