I’ve been excited about the 2012-13 version of Alex Len since he outclassed Kentucky’s bigs in the season opener, and I knew (via Draft Express and NBADraft.net) he’s shaping up to be a Lottery pick, but look at what Chad Ford wrote in today’s ESPN.com chat:
Where is Alex Len’s stock right now? Has to be climbing towards that top 7-10 range no?
Been No. 5 on our Big Board since the first week of the season. Still has an outside chance at the No. 1 pick. He’s 7-1, skilled and strong. Those guys don’t come along very often. Will be watching him very closely. There is a lot to like there.
“Still has an outside chance at the No. 1 pick.” That’s pretty impressive right there, especially when you consider Maryland hasn’t had a guy go in the top half of the Lottery since Stevie Franchise in ‘99. Lensanity!
