Cody Zeller

Zeller, the 7’0” Indiana center, is consistent and solid, although his team, the Hoosiers has faltered recently. They have gone 3-2 in their last five games, but the upside is that Zeller has 18 points per game in that span, including two double-doubles with a 25 point/10 rebound game against Michigan and a 22 point/10 rebound game earlier against Iowa.

It is sort of hard to see Phoenix draft Zeller because they have Marcin Gortat, Jermaine O’Neal and now (the emergence of?) Hamed Haddadi. However, if the Suns flip Gortat and some other pieces for a star, let O’Neal go to a contender or retire (whichever, he wants), and have Haddadi be the back-up, this scenario could work. This goes for the other two centers on the list.
