He’s been with scrub franchises so far, and Masai and company brought him in....other than Carroll they’ve been pretty good at finding gems. I think he’s looked like a 2 so far, but he might have 5 potential.

I don't even know how to make sense of this scale. That's like asking how big something is from 1 to 10, 1 being a golf ball and 10 being the sun.

I think it's pretty easy TBH. Here's a scale based on top 10 picks C's only:

1- Hoffa

2- Olowokandi

3- Kwame Brown

4- Bismack Biyombo

5- Keon Clark

6-Jonas Valanciunas

7- DeMarcus Cousins

8- Patrick Ewing

9- David Robinson

10- Shaq

Like a 4 that may turn out to be 6? Which is pretty good considering he's making next to nothing for a guy with his potential. Dude was a top pick for a reason. He has skill and athleticism for a guy his size. And he's put up numbers when given a chance. But often what matters when you get drafted is fit, opportunity and the team you land with and how good they are at development.

I guarantee that if we had drafted Len when he came out, he'd have had a much better career than what he's had so far.

Expect him to be viable backup. So maybe 4 or 5?

I don't hold false hope that somehow every scrub Masai Ujiri and co. touches magically turns into gold. Or that they saw something in him that nobody else did. Rather, I think he just happened to be the best option for the money available and that is ok.

Can he play defence?
That’s key.
If not, he’s just coming off the bench.
Will he take minutes from The slimduck?
It’s Baynes, Boucher, Lenn at centre, right?
Other than small ball...

4 sounds about right. But he's been on some bad teams, so maybe being on a good team like the Raps brings out some of his strengths and hides some of his weaknesses.

His raw stats, NetRating, VoRP, Win Share, BPM were all worse than a "washed" Gasol last season.

The only thing he really has over Gasol is age and the prospect that he might improve. In all stages of Gasols career, he was better than Len.

Len is a back up signing because our main bigs signed to contenders, his value will be as a 1 year filler, unless he shows us major development in his game before 2021 Free Agency.

Don't expect him to be a mainstay on this team, I have more hope for Boucher filling out his frame and being our longterm Center piece than Len staying on this team past 2021.

I don't know much about Len's game but there is no way he is a 1. Hoffa was... just... so bad. I honestly don't think he would even get minutes on the 905.

Len averaged over 10 ppg in a season. That alone should make it clear that he is far above Hoffa's level.

If he is 3 or lower, yikes! :lol:

edit:
I looked into Kwame's stats and surprisingly, he averaged 11ppg once. It was in 30mpg though where as Len averaged 11ppg in 20mpg once.

Len is alright, definitely good for a back up, not sure where all the haters coming from, maybe just think they are being funny.

Sevlen. JK 4. He's 3rd at C behind Boucher easily.

I think he's around a 6 with potential to be around a 7.

He is quick footed for a 7 footer and his shooting mechanics are actually quite decent. The stats don't show this but I think we'll be pleasantly surprised by his outside shot based on his mechanics.

I'd be interested to see this thread bumped half way through the season so we can gloat about how wrong (or right) we were about his play.
