CHA 2 Power Forward/Center: 7’0, 240 lbs; 5th year, Indiana

NBA Role: versatile, hybrid 4/5 • UnderDOG

Charlotte’s Cody Zeller is an athletic 7-footer who crashes the O-boards with fire & runs the floor in transition; Zeller took a step forward in 2016-17 – Cody showed he belonged by becoming stronger on the glass & mixing it up down low; decent jump shooter with room to improve out on the perimeter – you don’t realllly want Cody to fall in love with deep Js, though he needs to at least have a (straightaway or corner) 3 ball in his back pocket; needs to ramp up defensive intensity (particularly one-on-one coverage) to evolve into a designated watch dog in the middle – already does a decent job of rotating and covering the rim on the weak side; better suited as a five – needs to work on scoring on the left block & facing up on the elbow

Signature Slam:  trailing dunk
