False. He runs the floor and can shoot. As long as he can passably rebound and not be a siv on D he'll be at minimum a solid rotation guy. Teams will pay big money for a mobile big who knows where to be and makes the right pass.
Honestly, I think he could carve out a role like what Nene does on the wizards. Athletic big who you don't cringe every time he handles the ball, with a shot out to 15 ft. Nene is much stronger, but zeller is young and from what I saw in the summer league he is already as confident as Nene as a shooter. You won't want to just let this kid stand ungaurded in the mid range. He's very quick for a 7 footer so I think that combination of spot up threat+face up quickness could work well on O. I see him being abused on D this season
kwame brown was a solid rotation guy for a decade. Sure, he was picked 1 vs 4.
