The Charlotte Bobcats need help in their front-court. Badly. Byron Mullens isn’t efficient or a defensive stalwart, and Bismack Biyombo has no offensive game to speak of. Combine the two, and you’d have a pretty decent big man. But individually, their flaws are gigantic and easy to expose.
Needless to say, as we’ve exercised countless times here at Bobcats Planet during this disastrous 2012-13 season, the Bobcats are starving for some good, young talent in the paint.
Mullens and Biyombo serve a purpose and are solid young talents to grow on. But neither is a true go-to guy in any sense of the phrase, and the only way they’ll ever truly get better is if a more advanced post presence can help them find their true role and help Charlotte stop trying to make them into superstars.
Any way you shake it, Charlotte needs more meat down low, so it only makes sense to steer the draft ship toward big man Alex Len, as we start pondering what Charlotte might do should they pick outside the top-five. After all, with how god awful this year has been, it’s probably right to assume the Bobcats won’t be landing the #1 overall pick, right?
With that said, on to scouting Maryland center Alex Len.
