Charlotte Bobcats Should Consider Taking Alex Len

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA lottery will be drawn next week, and the Charlotte Bobcats will see the draft spot they’ll have for selecting one of college basketball’s best players. It’s likely the Bobcats will pick from as high as No.1 to No. 5, but they’re going to get a good player for sure. One might wonder how a tall player like Alex Len of the Maryland Terrapins would fit into their plans.

If the Bobcats don’t get into the top three or four and Len is still available, he could be their man. He’s a native of the Ukraine and has impressed NBA scouts with his ability to handle himself inside.

Some scouts even have Len ranked in the top five. He averaged 11.9 points for the Terrapins with 5.4 rebounds a game while shooting 53.1 percent from the floor. His minutes more than doubled this season for Maryland.

Len has the advantage of playing in the tough ACC where he seemed to hold his own. That’s what scouts like about him. He’s among the top young players whose potential is untapped that could eventually be an unstoppable force inside and an NBA superstar.

No guarantees, obviously, but if Charlotte can get a big man like Len in the middle, despite having lost the chance to get a higher pick, they could be all set. He’s going to have to be a consistent rebounder, and for that to happen, the Bobcats will have to increase his ability to understand how the NBA game is played in the paint and how he can fit in.

Hornets Inexplicably Allow Durant Free Dunk

While I understand that Oklahoma City Thunder SF Kevin Durant is physically intimidating when driving the lane, the Charlotte Hornets should be ashamed of themselves for the defensive effort they put forth during this play. I mean, they didn't even try. The Hornets have made some solid strides this season, but boneheaded mental collapses like this will prevent them from continuing to build momentum.
