Tyler Zeller Has Really Short Arms

Or maybe they just sit low on his torso or something. But in any case, despite being 7-feet tall, Zeller ‘only’ has a standing reach of 8’8.5″. By comparison, his shorter teammate, John Henson, measured out at 9’4″ in standing reach — over 7 inches higher!

Despite playing starters minutes, Zeller blocked 1.5 shots per game in college. If the Bucks were looking to him to be the missing interior piece they lacked last season, then they may need to look elsewhere. Those 1.5 blocks will deteriorate to an even smaller number in the pros.

According to Gery Woelfel, Zeller will be in Milwaukee for a workout Thursday.  Woelfel also tweeted that Norfolk State C/PF Kyle O’Quinn will be at the session.
