On Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reported that free agent center Alex Len signed with the Washington Wizards. Len played for the Toronto Raptors earlier this season, where he averaged 2.3 points per game.

Len is currently in his eighth NBA season after being the fifth pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, but he hasn’t played over 70 games in an NBA season since the 2018-19 season, when he averaged a career-high 11.1 points per game for the Atlanta Hawks. Still, Len comes to Washington needing a team where he can revive his career. Thomas Bryant is out for the remained for the 2020-21 season due to a torn ACL, and their depth is very thin with Moritz Wagner as the team’s only other true option at center.

Though Len is a native of Ukraine, he has ties to the D.C. area. He played at the nearby University of Maryland from 2011-13 where the Terrapins made the NIT semifinals in his sophomore season.

Welcome back to D.C., Alex.
