BOS Center: 7’0, 253 lbs; 6th year, UNC 

NBA Role: skilled, offensive pivot 

Tyler Zeller: a 7-footer w/ a soft touch around the basket; an improved shooter, Zeller’s midrange game is solid out to about 18 feet; offense is the name of the game: not a “dump it in, gimme a basket” low-post scorer but gets it done with baby hooks using either hand (lefty hook is pretty cash) on the block; subpar rebounder for his size and maneuverability – doesn’t really get after it like he should on the glass; decent shot-blocker & passing big – Zeller’s an all-around, rotational piece who doesn’t need heavy minutes to make an impact…that said, Brad Stevens has given him some weirdly sporadic PT despite being effective at times; in need of a change of scenery?
