The Charlotte Bobcats had plenty of talent fall to them at No. 4 overall in the 2013 NBA draft. From that talent the team elected to choose Indiana star Cody Zeller.
Charlotte has a roster just brimming with talent thanks to recent, quality selections like Kemba Walker and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Zeller adds even more young talent to a roster looking to take the next step.
Zeller is a lottery pick, and how high he goes depends on the interview and workout process and a team’s particular needs.“I think his stock with where he’s at with the people that make the decisions and sign the checks is very high,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said. “Once they see Cody in the settings of the workouts, in the settings of the competitions, the settings of the weight rooms, and the settings of the interview process, they’ll be even more amazed.”
One thing’s for sure, the selections of Anthony Bennett, Victor Oladipo and Otto Porter made things easy for Charlotte here. Things were looking iffy after losing the lottery and with all the pre-draft speculation, but the ship appears to be righted.
Zeller is a leader who strived in the spotlight and brings some serious leadership and star power to the team. Things just got much better in Charlotte. Zeller gives the Bobcats a seriously well-rounded roster.
