"I contacted the Clippers about medical coverage and they said [prostate cancer] surgery wouldn't be covered. [T]hey said if they did it for one person, they'd have to do for everybody else." - Kim Hughes
Zeller is not nearly as good as his younger brother - Tyler, a starter at North Carolina - and nor does he play like him. Whilst Tyler makes his living with hook shots and movement around the basket, Luke mainly takes jumpshots, and subsequently shot 39% in his senior season despite standing 6'11. Furthermore, his senior season averages of 4.9ppg and 2.8rpg were also career highs, which is slightly worrying in almost 15 minutes per game. And it's not as though he defends like Connor Atchley.
Zeller played last year in Japan, averaging 8.2ppg and 7.2rpg in 22 minutes of 50 games for the Shiga Lakestars of the BJ League. He was also playing in Lithuania up until two weeks ago, averaging 5.2 points and 3.7 rebounds for Naglis-Adakris Palangos.
[...] (Strangely, the league leader in assist/turnover ratio is 6'11 Bakersfield jumpshooting centre Luke Zeller, with a 4.3:1 mark. Luke also has 75 three point attempts to only 4 free throw attempts. He is a centre in height only.)
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
