Len and Townsend, a University of Maryland women’s basketball player, started dating shortly after Len arrived in College Park, and they’ll certainly be the tallest couple at the draft in New York tomorrow.

Alexander Chernykh: Alex Len doesn't have a guarantee from any team - his agent Michael Lelchitski told R-Sport Twitter

But no more certain is the second choice, who was thought to be Kansas’ shooting guard Ben McLemore, but now may be Indiana’s Victor Oladipo or Georgetown’s Otto Porter. Or it could be Maryland’s 7-foot-1 center Alex Len — except that Len could be the No. 1 choice. “I haven’t seen that in a long, long time,” Blake said of the uncertainty surrounding not only the top pick, but the unknowns that will pepper the entire first round. “I need to go back, but it’s very rare that the top draft pick has been traded. That could happen this year.” Bergen Record

How do you feel about not being able to work out for the teams? Alex Len: Yeah, I was just feeling frustrated that I couldn't work out and I couldn't compete with the other guys. I'm just trying to be focused on improving from my injury, doing rehab... Just continue to work hard and get better. HoopsHype

How has been the experience the past few weeks – all these interviews with the NBA executives, going to the draft combine, etcetera? Alex Len: It has been a lot of fun. The last 2-3 weeks I've been traveling a lot and although I didn't work out because of the injury I've been able to do interviews with different teams. I met a lot of good people and kind of got a feel of the teams. Having gone throught that, when I get drafted the first year is going to be easier. HoopsHype
