NBA Draft Prospect Alex Len Girlfriend Is 6’7″
Say hello to the tallest couple that will be attending the NBA draft. The young Ukraine star Alex Len is rumored to be the #1 draft pick by the Cleveland Cavilers tonight, which seems ideal after the Cavilers acquired the assistance of Vitaly Potapenko. Potapenko is a former Cavaliers center also from Ukraine, and will be assisting the Cavilers as a player-development coach.
The fun fact about Len, however is his girlfriend Essence Townsend is almost as tall as he is standing at 6-foot-7. Townsend, who plays for the University of Maryland women’s basketball team, began dating Len shortly after he arrived on campus.
If Townsend takes her talents to the WNBA, you may have a new addition to the “Love and Basketball” romance. Move over Kevin Durant and Monica Wright.
