Default Suns rookies Goodwin, Len make strong first impressions

The Suns selected Len, 20, with the fifth overall pick. They drafted the 7-foot-1 center knowing he had undergone left ankle surgery in May and would likely need a similar procedure done on his right ankle, which he did in July.

Len, though, has been a full participate the entire training camp with only the higher elevation slowing him -- and others -- down.

"We forget that he hasn't done anything in six months," head coach Jeff Hornacek said. "But I think he's doing a great job of playing hard. He's trying to listen to what we're doing. He's asking the coaches questions. We forget sometimes how young he is and things that he has to learn. We're trying to give him those little hints of when he gets the ball inside, how to get in the best position."

Goodwin, who only recently turned 19, was acquired on draft night. The 29th overall pick has consistently been the last player off the court at the Rolle Activity Center.

Goodwin is going to be the steal of his draft class.
And an important piece for the Suns, hope they don't deal him away
