Default Alex Len may play pretty soon

From the moment the Suns drafted Alex Len with the fifth-overall pick, the plan was to bring the 7-foot-1 center along slowly.

That is still the plan, but with the trade of Marcin Gortat to the Washington Wizards, the door is now open for Len to play right away, gaining valuable in-game experience rather than watching from the bench.

"My first NBA season and I already get playing time," he said. "It's exciting; just go right at it. I think it's going to help my progress. I'm going to learn so much faster."

He better pend out. Suns are high on this guy as the center of the future

Is Miles Plumlee our starting center for the season opener?

He's getting progressively better, 9pts 6 boards last night in 16 mins. On the other hand plumlee has been in a slump these past 3 games

agree. he's looking better and better game to game.

hopefully he doesn't stunt plumlee in the process, though. it'd be nice to have 2 serviceable centers...or is that too much to ask?

That would be great. I'm actually surprised how much frye has improved in the post. I read an article mentioning 2 suns assistant coaches have been working with plumlee on his post moves, I don't doubt for a second that they helped frye improve.
