Alex Len is still favorite in Charlotte if he's there at No. 4, but Zeller has remained a constant in dialogue, league sources tell Y!— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 27, 2013
Len is no surprise here, as many analysts have him as one of the most highly-ranked prospects, but Zeller may be a bit more of a surprise. Zeller's been mostly though of as a mid-lottery pick with most mock drafts sending him to Portland.
Both players have been in to meet with Charlotte's head honchos. Each has their own different positives: Len has better physical tools to fit in the NBA at an elite level, but he'll have to build upon them further; Zeller is closer to being a finished product with great polish on his offense, but has less potential to greatly improve.
Cody Zeller in strong consideration for Charlotte (4), Phoenix (5), sources say. If McCollum goes 6 or 7, Detroit has Zeller high on board.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 27, 2013
Still, I wouldn't count out Anthony Bennett or other players at this point. Who knows what can happen on draft day.
