Big man Len signs with Hawks

Free agent center Alex Len is signing a two-year, $8.5 million deal with the Atlanta Hawks, according to a report from Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

Len was drafted fifth overall in the 2013 draft by the Phoenix Suns, but never lived up to the hype. The 7-footer has career averages of just 7.2 points and 6.5 rebounds in 335 games.

In 69 games this past season with the Suns, Len averaged 8.5 points and 7.5 rebounds while shooting 56.6 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from three.
