I like Zeller, I loathe his contract. The day Zeller and Batum are off this roster is a day of celebration and cleansing.

It's been like a long bath in battery acid.

zeller's contract is over after this year anyways lol

dude's been a great teammate the entire time he's been here and gave his all every game. dude is washed but i can't imagine a reason to hate the guy. hell, once his contract expires i'd be fine offering him vet min just to keep him around the org....

no way he should be grouped up with batum

Zeller is a good guy who has a role too big for him.

He would be great as a 15/20 minute energy guy off the bench.

This news does make me wonder if drafting Ball just to trade him down to the Pistons or Knick to get back Okongwu and additional assets was in fact the draft night plan when Wiswman was off the board - just as some posers believe it was.

But then Okongwu was was snapped up by the Hawks before we could trade Ball to the Pistons or the Knicks killing that plan and leaving us with plan B - which was retaining Ball?

I view this Ball pick as a high upside developmental pick who will line up well with whatever we add in the 2021 draft since they’ll likely be the same age and also a top 5 pick.

No doubt we are bottom 5. But at least we'll be fun to watch.

They said the Clippers were trying to trade for Rozier. So Harrell turned down a sign-and-trade?
