Alex Len is literally everything you want in a big and the Bobcats are in desperate need of one. He can post up, face up, hit the bank, hit a long range 2, pass out of the double team INCREDIBLY well, likes to finish strong at the rim, and can protect the rim.
If you watch the DraftExpress video on him right here you see what he brings to the table.

One of the three things that impress me the most is his ability to create from the post. He uses jab steps, ball fakes and anything it takes to get to the rim. His post game is so versatile in that he knows how to get past his defender and get an easy shot. Many times in this video he gets past his defender and dunks with flare. I saw two very difficult reverse dunks out of the POST.
The second of the three things is his ability to draw the double and pass it to the right guy. He created looks for shooters that we didnt see all season last year with the Cats. He passes it quickly out of the double too, making him more effective.
The third has kinda already been said but there is almost not downside to this kid. Grouped with a coach like Steve Clifford, who has a lot of experience with bigs (Dwight Howard on the Magic), and playmakers like Kemba Walker and MKG, and shooters like Gordon and maybe someone from free agency we are going to be a team that can compete nightly in the NBA.
