As we come down the stretch to the end of the NBA season, as do we come to the beginning of the offseason. The NBA draft is less than a week away, and the Cats seem to have their sights set firmly on two distinct front court prospects. On one side you have the Ukrainian 7 footer Alex Len, whose measurables and game show a high ceiling, but whose lack of any distinct strength raises large questions about how low his floor could be. On the other side, you have the explosive, under-sized Anthony Bennett, who (despite questions about being a tweener) is a clear PF at the next level, with the strength and athleticism needed to excel inside at the next level. While having a terrific face up game along with a good jumper, questions loom about his hustle and motor on defense, which was certainly lacking in his lone season at UNLV.
Barring a surprising Len selection by Cleveland at No1 or Washington fulfilling Wall's wishes at No3, it seems likely that they'll both be available when it's our turn to pick. So now, I ask you, who do you pick in this spot? The explosive scoring PF or the physically appealing C prospect? In my last FanPost,I had a poll up regarding who should be drafted at No4. Anthony Bennett won handily with 40% of the 74 votes, and while Len wasn't one of the options, "Other" only managed 5% of the votes. It'll be interesting to see how much ground the intriguing C prospect has made up in the last month.
