The Brooklyn Nets recently hosted Tyler Zeller for a workout.

Brooklyn has also hosted Jared Sullinger for a workout.

that would be really awesome. all we need also is rondo is terrible and still a headcase causing AD to want out. i think we have decent chances in that case, and hopeful boston nets do well lol

Free agent center Tyler Zeller is finalizing a two-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets, league sources tell ESPN.

I wonder how big a role he will play there. He is serviceable and perhaps better than Hamilton who got some solid run at times last year?

Am I the only one who doesn't care where the pick ends up?

I mean, it's gone. I suppose if BKN ends up with the 8th worst record people can say "Danny knew it," but there's a lot of randomness. I think we all know that was an incredibly valuable asset he gave up, one way or the other.

And I don't much care whether Cleveland or someone else gets a top-3 pick.

I suppose I would care if BKN is the worst team at mid-year and the Cavs flip the pick for a star who helps them beat us this year. But that's about it.

Both Zeller and Sully are good buy low options for a franchise that has little to lose by signing them.  While Zeller is a fringe NBA player due to his weaknesses, he adds a veteran presence to a team that has no depth at the PF/C position.  Looking at BKN's roster, the starting C is Mozgov, with his only backup being a rookie in Jarrett Allen.  Their starting PF is Booker, with Quincy Acy as a backup (ESPN has him listed as a SF?).  Lack of depth at C/PF was a huge problem last season.

Zeller may be a decent fit given that Atkinson likes to play uptempo, and we all know that Zeller is very good at running the floor.  Sully could certainly help Brooklyn coming off the bench.  He would have been a far better option than Justin Hamilton last year.

Brooklyn will still be horrible, but again these are low risk moves for a team that doesn't have its pick once again this year.
