HoopsHype Alex Len rumors

Joe Kotoch: Cavs hoping to move down and still get Alex Len. To get the guy you want & additional assets is the Chris Grant way. Twitter @Probballdraft

According to multiple team sources, Len's stress fracture in his ankle was not all the way across; it's just a hairline due to the fact that they caught it early. The prevailing thought is that he'll be ready for training camp. ESPN.com

The coolest thing about Alex Len, though? His girlfriend (6-foot-7 Essence Townsend) is nearly as tall as he is (and they make an adorable couple)! 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.

Bob Finnan: Cavs "close" to finalizing draft board, source says. I think it's down to Noel & Len. Others think McLemore still in running. Twitter @BobCavsinsider

Len, the former Maryland standout center, is expected to be a top five selection in the draft. Some think he has a legitimate chance to be the No. 1 pick. I asked Len what he intends to do with his new-found wealth. “I’m going to give it to my mother,” Len said of his mother and best friend, Julie. “I never had money before and I don’t really need it now. I just need a little money for some food and clothes. That’s about it. “She raised me and took care of me to give me a better life. Now it’s my time to take care of her and make a better life for her.” Racine Journal-Times
