Alex Len hit 6-of-12 shots (2-of-2 FTs) with seven rebounds and one block in just 17 minutes off the bench on Thursday against the Mavs.
Granted the Mavs are a bit of a mess right now, but Len has been good lately playing pure backup big minutes. If he can keep moving his game toward the hoop he has a lot more value than he will as a stretch five. He has gotten it done in his last three games and we’re good with a speculative add and we’re one more game from calling him a must-own player. Tyson Chandler (three points, 18 boards, three assists, zero defensive stats, 28 minutes) has to bow out at some point and if Len is paying the bills in a low minute total he becomes a rock solid stash.
