“His potential is good,” Hansbrough said. “He’s got size at 7 feet. He really runs the floor well. His midrange game is really useful. I think he can really help them.”
“I think he was the steal [of the draft],” Hansbrough said. “They were projecting him to go lottery. He’s going to be a very solid pro. There will be some teams who regret not taking him.”
Zeller played very well, finishing with 13 points and 7 rebounds. And he did much of it against Roy Hibbert, no slouch. It’s going to be interesting looking back at this rookie class five years from now and see who has really asserted themselves in the NBA. Harrison Barnes gets all the hype, but Zeller really good be a sleeper candidate to have the longest, most consistent and productive career in the league. Can’t teach height.
