Len, 27, came to the Kings in a midseason trade with the Atlanta Hawks and quickly proved himself to be a useful part of the big rotation. Across nine games with Sacramento, he averaged 6.6 points and 7.1 rebounds in 16.7 minutes per contest on 61.9 percent shooting from the field. He will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
