Default Re: Zeller to Cleveland for 24th, 33rd,34th

Why are people so low on Zeller. He's incredibly skilled, is fairly athletic for a big guy, can run the floor, is a solid defender and a good rebounder. He's not going to be a dominant post presence by any means but he's established andhas a high floor. A knack on him is that he's a bit stubby and doesn't have the IT facotr but at this point in the draft, you're looking for guys to fill a role.

NBA is all about quality, not quantity as someone said. Zeller's already a better player than Thompson. This whole drafting on potential thing is incredibly overrated, especially when you have established superstars. With Zeller, you know what you got, with the chance of improving. Guys like Drummond with no foundation are exremely likely to be complete busts. Sometimes it's just smarter to play a bit conservatively.

Guarantee that he will be better than Leonard.
