Starter — Alex Len
Backups — Dewayne Dedmon, Miles Plumlee
Alex Len really wanted out of Phoenix, so much so that he was willing to sign a two-year contract with the rebuilding Hawks just to break free from their grasp. It’s not rocket science as to why Len wanted to ditch the Suns. While he had a productive five seasons in the Valley of the Sun, he just wasn’t in their future plans, and he needed to go to a team that could provide him plenty of minutes and opportunities to up his game.
Enter the Hawks.
With a nice touch around the rim and an overlooked defensive mindset, Len could become a force to be reckoned with in Atlanta; and it’s not quite of a stretch to say that he could develop into one of the East’s best centers.
Backing him up will be Dewayne Dedmon, who will provide rebounding and defense for the second unit. It’s not a stretch to say that this could be Atlanta’s strongest position.
