2. Alex Len

Center Alex Len has come to personify an era of Suns basketball that fans would rather forget, but a lot has changed in the 11 years since the franchise drafted him fifth overall. Back then they needed him to be their young hope for a brighter future, as this was before Booker landed in The Valley.

Instead he was absolutely not that - but since leaving the Suns back in 2015 - Len has gone on to carve out a career for himself in the league. Has it been very successful? No, with the highlight being averaging 10.3 points and 5.6 rebounds in two seasons with the Atlanta Hawks. But the fact Len remained in the league and never went back to Europe is actually a victory in itself.

A return to Phoenix under different circumstances could be exactly what Len and the Suns need. He only managed a shade under 10 minutes per night in 48 contests for the Sacramento Kings this season, but Len possesses a bigger and more imposing frame than Eubanks and could serve as a better backup to Jusuf Nurkic.

Unlike Biyombo, there is no doubt that Len has diversified his play since he was last seen in The Valley. That's not to say he's gotten much better - but when compared to somebody like Biyombo who everybody knows what he is going to bring to a roster - there's a chance that Len has a little bit more upside. Not much, but the Suns have to take advantage of these potential opportunities.
