He needs to add some strength, but he seems reasonable coordinated and even hit a long jumper. I'm not sure if he'd be an upgrade over Vuc, but he's only a sophomore.
He and Vucc have a lot in common, actually. Both came to the US as HS seniors, and both started playing at young ages in their native countries. Len is from Ukraine, and Flying V from Montenegro. Both are finesse bigs without super athleticism but with a penchant for scoring from up close without having plays called specifically for them. I like Len, and think he might have a higher ceiling than V, though not by all that much. It's super early, but I think we go in a different direction at least as of now.
