NBA Trade Rumors: Oklahoma City Thunder Trying to Trade Up For Alex Len


Former Maryland standout Alex Len is a hot name in the 2013 NBA Draft class. He has been linked to the Cleveland Cavaliers as a potential No.1 overall pick, but if he slides out of the top spot he could generate a lot of interest and potential movement in the draft order.

According to reports, the Oklahoma City Thunder are one of the teams who are looking to move up in order to select Len if he falls.

At least that is what Len is telling ESPN’s Andy Katz:

If the Thunder can make the move to land Len, it would be a great move that fills a big need.

You can also be sure that the Thunder fans will be happy with the acquisition.

We will find out if anything happens on the Len front in the next 24 hours as we gear up for the 2013 NBA Draft.
