Joel James ?

6-10, 260 lbs, works inside, decent feet, good athlete, soft touch, only a freshman, can hit a free throw, strong as a bear, hard worker, and unafraid to mix it up down low. All the ingredients to be a dominant post player?

Wow at how polished he looks here offensively. Something like Pau could be a legit comparison for him. I'm putting this guy as the #1 pick on the mock I'm about to do. (Edit - Nvm, didn't take into account Detroit is picking 1st on that mock)

quicker footed brook lopez? impressive mobility and skill. never seen him play.

Sticking with the Jonas V comparison? Sucks to hear he's so easily moved off the block. :-?

Guess no Timmy D coming down the road anytime soon...*sigh*

If you had to recommend me 3 elite low post big men who are 2-way players (either in college or high school), could you give me some names? Or is every big man going down the Garnett (perimeter)/Amare (face up)/Griffin (pure athleticism) road?

*EDIT* By elite low post, I mean guys pulling off legitimate post moves rather than just outjumping their counterparts. Of course, it'd be nice if they were not 6'8, 225lb power forwards, but legitimate bigs (6'11" or 7' and 240+ lbs)

If Karno keeps working on his body, he's gonna be a stud. Very advanced post moves, great hands, runs the floor really well. He's gotta keep getting rid of the baby fat and rebound a little better, but he could be a very, very good true center.

I dont see many similarities in him and Jonas, besides looks. Jonas would prefer to roll to the rim off the pick and roll while Len likes to pop. Also, Jonas is more of a defensive big compared to Len's offensive style. Len isnt much of a defender at this point besides his shot blocking.

Len has top 10 potential, but lots of overreactions from the UK game. Cant think of an apt comparison, but the Brook Lopez one wasnt that bad

This is my first thought as well, especially pre-foot injuries Z. That guy would have been a dominant center if not for all of the screws he had to get put in his feet.
Kyrie Irving was posing back stage in his uniform holding the crystal MVP trophy. "Make sure you get Cleveland," he said, referring to the "CAVALIERS" on his home white jersey.

The first two posts are pretty positive outlook on Len.. Even guessing the top 5 pick (barely).

I've seen some quotes from Suns FO mentioning similarities to Len and Duncan...
And Len looking up to Duncan.

As a Suns fan... Would love for him to even come 70-75% of Tim Duncan... A double double center who can score a bit and defend the paint.

The comparisons to JV are so weird now after he played with no energy for the entire season, :lol:

His face and body type are similar to Valanciunas I guess.
