Cody Zeller
PF/C, 7’0, 240lbs, 24 years old, 4 years of experience

Continued a career full off incremental improvements, and has become a very efficient offensive option whose transition game adds a dimension to a team that otherwise struggles in that area. Zeller’s rebounding rate took a big hit and is now distinctly sub-par, and his lack of rim protection contributed to a team-wide inability to stop opponents around the basket. Nonetheless, he has speed and athleticism, and uses it to hus-tle around defensively while being a very effective role man offensively, scoring with great efficiency despite neither posting up nor spotting up. Signed for the next four years at an average of $14 million per, Zeller is a good new-era centre, and a starting calibre player even if Howard’s addition puts him to the bench.

Player Plan: Begins four year, $56 million extension this summer. A somewhat limited play-er who has done an excellent job of playing within what he does well, and who is worthy of that money based on current play. If he keeps improving, even better. But he will not pair well with Howard, will surely have to go to the bench, and thus is the most obvious casualty of the deal.
