I really don't want to lose him this off-season. I think he brings in a good energy on the defensive end and scoring off the bench. But we do have a log jam at the center position and the big man positions in general with Jabari, Marvin, Beli, Harry, Holmes, and Len so some of them might have to find a new home and I fear Len will be the odd one out.
