Ex-Celtics center Tyler Zeller to sign a two-year deal with Nets




Free agent center Tyler Zeller is finalizing a two-year deal with the Nets, according to ESPN.


Zeller spent the last three seasons with the Celtics. The veteran big man fell out of favor last year, averaging a career-low 10.3 minutes per game.


Zeller’s best season came in 2014 when he started 59 games for the Celtics, averaging 10.2 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.


Zeller was drafted in the first round in 2012 by the Mavericks before being subsequently traded to the Cavaliers. He famously led the University of North Carolina to a national championship in 2009.


His younger brother Cody Zeller plays for the Charlotte Hornets.
