Len, the No. 5 selection in the 2013 NBA draft, has not lived up to expectations in his first four years in the league. In 2016-17 he averaged 8.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks.

Williams, undrafted in 2015, has impressed as a backup since he signed on March 18, 2016. In 47 appearances last season, Williams averaged 7.4 points and 6.2 rebounds.
