Lloyd Pierce said that picking a starter between DeWayne Dedmon and Alex Len, "would be an interesting discussion at some point."
Dedmon's avulsion fracture has kept him sidelined, otherwise the job would surely be his. His absence has allowed Len to get a longer look in the preseason and he's responded with a few solid outings while showcasing increased range. Whoever wins the battle would be a late-round option, but we're pulling for Dedmon on the back of his 3-point shooting and blocks numbers. We've seen what Len can do in stints as a starter for Phoenix and while you can't rule out any improvements, Dedmon just offers a little more upside.
