4. Charlotte: Cody Zeller – Indiana
7-0, PF/C
20 years old, Sophomore

Right before this pick was made, we told ourselves it had to be Nerlens Noel. It only made sense. Instead, the Bobcats go with one of the best athletes in the draft: Cody Zeller. He blew everyone away during the draft combines and can really get up and down the floor.

Will this be another mistake from Charlotte? Hard to say. There are one of two thoughts with Zeller. Either he’s too physically weak to survive the frontcourt pounding… or his athleticism will help mold him into a fantastic stretch four who can finish on the break.

Was this the right move?

    Im always rooting for underdogs team like the bobcats… but im disappointed with this pick. I just dont think Zeller has allstar potential and i believe will be a very good role player.. but come one MJ… there were alot more better players in the draft, at least should have traded down to get more assets to help the team. Ben M. would have been really nice for this team or even Noel. … anther wasted draft pic..when will MJ learn form past mistakes… will see… i hope im wrong!
