3 players that could replace Alex Len for the Toronto Raptors: C Dewayne Dedmon
What could made Dedmon so attractive to the Raptors is how similar his playstyle is to that of Ibaka. He has the tools that physical tools that Ibaka has, but he can also block a shot when called upon or step out and hit a clutch three. Dedmon might not be an amazing shooter, but 33 percent certainly stands out for a seven-foot big man.
He shot the three well during the 2018-19 season when he shot 38 percent with the Atlanta Hawks. After a brief trip to Sacramento ruined his value, Dedmon remains on the free-agent market. While any number of contending teams, including division rivals like Brooklyn and Philadelphia, could be interested in him, Toronto makes a ton of sense, as Dedmon can play right away while offering more than Baynes or Len on offense.
Dedmon will not be the defensive anchor that Ibaka was, but he can help replace some of the offense Ibaka has while holding his own on the defensive end of the court. At this point in the season, it is very rare for a player like Dedmon, who has the experience, solid three-point shot, and physical build needed to bang down low for a Raptors team in frankly dire need of a player like him.
