On Dec. 23, the University of Maryland product grabbed a season-high 17 rebounds, plus added 15 points and three blocks, during a win a Detroit. On Apr. 7, Len scored a career-high 33 points and drained a career-best six three-pointers during a loss at Milwaukee. For the season, the big center also averaged 5.5 boards and 0.9 blocks per contest.

Len continued to serve as a valuable reserve big man in his fifth NBA season. Appearing in 69 games with 13 starts, the Maryland product averaged more than 20 minutes per night for the fourth straight year. He scored 8.5 points per game and grabbed 7.5 rebounds per contest. Len also matched a career best with 1.2 assists per game. He displayed great efficiency on the offensive end, shooting a career best 56.6 percent from the field.

He was also able to stuff the stat sheet on multiple occasions, scoring 10 or more points 26 times while posting 12 double-doubles. Len scored a season-high 21 points in a start against Orlando on Nov. 10, a game in which he played 39 minutes and shot 11-of-12 from the free-throw line.

Len's field-goal percentage increased to 49.7 percent and his blocks per game improved -- from 0.8 last season to 1.3 in 2016-17.

During the 2015-16 season, Len was able to build on the growth he demonstrated the prior year, his sophomore season in The Association. After an injury-shortened rookie season (2012-13), Len enjoyed back-to-back relatively healthy campaigns for Phoenix. In 2015-16, Len played in a career-high 78 games and played a career-best 23.3 minutes per contest. The big man also experienced per-game career-high averages in points (9.0), rebounds (7.6), and assists (1.2) while also starting a career-best 46 games. Early in the season, due to the offseason addition of Tyson Chandler, Len saw more limited court time. However, the 23-year-old saw his minutes expand beginning in December, after injuries began to take their toll on Chandler and other players on the roster. From Dec. 1 onward, Len was a regular double-double threat with averages of 10.1 points and 8.4 rebounds in 25.6 minutes per game. On Feb. 4, Len snared a career-best 18 rebounds, plus 12 points, during a loss to the Rockets.

Len collected 19 double-doubles over the course of the season.2014
Len enjoyed a healthy 2014-15 season, his sophomore year in The Association. While his rookie season was hampered by right and left ankle injuries, he emerged as a steady contributor after recovering. In 2014-15, Len appeared in 69 games, with 44 starts, and averaged 22 minutes per contest. He also shot an impressive 50.7 percent from the field, improving from the 42.3 percent mark he posted in his rookie campaign. Overall, Len posted per-game averages of 6.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 0.5 steals per contest. On Oct. 31, the second game of the season, Len produced his first career double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds in a home win over the Spurs. On Nov. 17, Len scored a career-high 19 points (on 8-of-10 shooting) and seven rebounds during a win at Boston. On Jan. 2, Len swatted a career-best six shots, plus posted a double-double of 10 points and 12 boards in a loss to the Celtics -- he would reach that mark two more times before the end of the season. Len would snare 10 double-doubles for the season and had six games with five or more blocks. On Jan. 11, the big center grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds, plus 14 points, in a loss at Memphis. A broken nose and subsequent surgery forced Len to miss the final seven games of the season.2013
Len was drafted in the first round with the fifth overall pick by the Phoenix Suns in the 2013 NBA Draft. Multiple injuries led to Len having a less-than-ideal rookie season. A left ankle injury prevented Len from participating in pre-draft workouts. After the draft, on Jul. 12, Len had right ankle surgery to correct an issue discovered during a routine medical exam. The big Ukrainian still was able to make his NBA debut on Opening Night, Oct. 30, and posted two points and two rebounds over eight minutes during a home win over Portland. His sore left ankle allowed the big rookie to play in only four total games between opening night and Jan. 4. Len returned to the hardwood Jan. 7 and played in 15 straight games, averaging 2.5 points and 3.1 rebounds over 9.0 minutes per game duringthat span. On Mar. 4, Len would receive his first NBA start and posted six points with six rebounds against the Clippers in an eight-point loss. Ankle woes limited Len's participation to only two of Phoenix's last eight games. The Suns finished with a winning record of 48-34 and Len averaged 2.0 points and 2.4 boards per game in his first year in The Association.
