Charlotte Bobcats Taking Another Look At Alex Len For 2013 NBA Draft

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Alex Len of Maryland could go as high as sixth in the NBA draft according to some reports.

Could he go as high as fourth? In other words, should the Charlotte Bobcats be looking for an inside player like Len?

If the Bobcats had the No.1 or 2 pick, the best bet would be to go for Nerlens Noel because of the excellent play he could give the team inside. There’s a slight chance he might be available if the three teams ahead of the Bobcats decide to go with perimeter players.

It’d doubtful, however, that all three will pass on Noel which is why the Bobcats might look at a guard.

New coach Steve Clifford has to assess his team’s roster and look at the players who are providing a lot of inside strength and defensive prowess. There’s not much on the current Bobcat roster, and Len is getting a lot of looks from teams with top picks.

At 7-1, 225 pounds, he’s very attractive for defensive purposes, and the reports from this past season say that his offense saw an impressive improvement for Maryland. He averaged 26.4 minutes, 11.9 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game while shooting 53.3 percent from the floor. NBA observers like his size and mobility, but the question is if he can be a consistent NBA player that is aggressive enough to be a force in the league.

Unless the Bobcats think they’re okay defensively they need to give Len a solid look. He has the potential to be an NBA star, and they are badly in need of stars.

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.
