Alex Len

The Suns' top overall draft pick is relatively new to Twitter judging by his 40 total tweets, but he's been tweeting up a storm since the commissioner called his name. Here's Alex chronicling his first couple days as a Sun:

Hello Phoenix! #GoSuns — Alex Len (@alexlen) June 28, 2013

Celebrating with @CoachTurgeon he has done a lot for me, honored to have him as a coach for 2 yrs @UMTerps! #GoSuns pic.twitter.com/JY5p9V3MWd

He seems to be a fan of the #GoSuns hashtag. I like that one too.

Proud to be a Ukranian! Appreciate @borntotailor for putting together my #NBADraft suit! #GoSuns pic.twitter.com/tjb8qdnCCn

I didn't catch this on draft night, but apparently he had a Ukrainian flag sewed on the inside of his suit. That's pretty awesome.

Wheels up to PHX! See you in a few hours Phoenix! #GoSuns pic.twitter.com/fUk3meJj7S

Apparently not all bridges have been burned with Thunder Dan.

Archie Goodwin

Just based on these few tweets, I get the impression that Archie's a hard worker and is excited to be a Sun.

Time to start this journey to the top. All the doubters about to see me in action

— Archie Goodwin (@A1Laflare10) June 28, 2013

Feels good to be apart of a new beginning RT @Suns: Welcome to your new home @a1Laflare10. #WelcomeArchie #SunsDraft http://t.co/QfRWVXMyDL

Alex Oriakhi

Didn't get much sleep want to thank the @Suns for the opportunity.. Thank you all for the support!!

— Alex Oriakhi (@aoriakhi42) June 28, 2013

Another hard worker.

Spoke to Alex Oriaki around 2pm today "I'm on my way to the gym to workout the grind don't stop" he gets it congrats @aoriakhi42

— HoopDreamsMag.com (@HoopDreamsmag) June 28, 2013

He and Summer Suns invitee and Iowa State graduate Chris Babb apparently are bros. The chemistry should be great in Vegas sine a lot of these guys either know or have played together before.

@ChrisBabbII lets get it

— Alex Oriakhi (@aoriakhi42) June 28, 2013

This last one is for a certain Nigerian reader here on Bright Side. You know who you are (Rex).

@aoriakhi42 congrats on your draft bro!we support you here in nigeria.#naijaboy.

Obviously the Suns' two serial tweeters were going to weigh in on the draft as well.

Kendall Marshall

Kendall was obviously following along as the picks were being announced and welcomed each of the guys as they were drafted.

Welcome to PHX @alexlen! congrats

— Kendall Marshall (@KButter5) June 28, 2013

Welcome to PHX @A1Laflare10!

Congrats to all players drafted. Excited to get in the gym with @A1Laflare10 @alexlen @aoriakhi42. Let's work! #Suns

Jared Dudley

RT @AZSports620: RT @alexlen: Hello Phoenix! #GoSuns (Welcome to the team!! Congrats )

— Jared Dudley (@JaredDudley619) June 28, 2013

Goran Dragic and P.J. Tucker were active on draft night as well.

Goran Dragic

@alexlen & @A1Laflare10 welcome to the @Suns family. Excited to play with you guys!!! Let's go #suns

— Goran Dragic (@Goran_Dragic) June 28, 2013

P.J. Tucker

Apparently Tucker is buddies with Dez Wells, a Maryland guard and teammate of Len. It looks like Wells was talking his boy up to Tucker before the draft.

I like it.. I like it a lot, Dez told me how hard he go so he gon fit right in #Pause #WelcomeToPhx

— PJ Tucker (@PJTUCKER17) June 28, 2013

The official @Suns account has put out plenty of great stuff as well over the weekend, so be sure to check that out.

On behalf of the entire Bright Side staff, welcome to the Suns Alex, Archie and Alex!
