Cody Zeller 2018-2019 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

First preseason game is on NBA TV. Zeller already stuffed Al Horford and scored the first hornets point. He’s looking good and healthy from what I can see. He could be a nice sleeper pick.

I have an eye on him. He was good last year when healthy. Now with Dwight get he should more opportunity. The only issue is that the coach has been talking up willy hernangomez quite a bit and frankly willy has more upside. Just gonna watch and see how this plays out before making any moves.

If they start a front court of Hernangomez and Marvilliams, they might as well just lower the basket to seven feet. They need Zeller for his defense, and personally I don't think that Willy has more upside anyway.

Looking real good today and pretty clearly looks like he'll be the starter.

Barring injuries I'm thinking Steven Adams like numbers this year.

Good to hear someone else has that comparison. I believe Adams at best. Somewhere between WCS and Adams most likely. He is on the wire and I've been thinking about him for about a week. 

I do think Willy has too much upside as well though if zeller has a dud streak

I'd agree with that comparison.

Hernangomez looking like a 2k myplayer at the moment ... but the fit for Cody with the starters and Hernangomez as the number one option in the second unit seems logical.

What’s a realistic stat-line?

 

11-8-2.5-1-1, 0.3 triples, 1.2 Tos 55/65% is what I'm expecting. A little better than 2 years ago. Really not too worried about WHG. he can't defend and will be more useful to them scoring off the bench. Zeller is a very underrated player and fits well with the first team and is a plus in both ends

Anyone know why he only played 21 minutes and had only one field goal attempt against the Bucks?

Hornets went small for the end of the game (Batum played center)

True.  I guess I should say I'm watching my bench guys very closely..  Not sure I'd want to drop Hart, Okobo, or Ntilikana for him just yet even though I could use his slight fg% boost.

Okobo and Nitikina will def not help with fg%.
