Tyler Zeller discusses the wedding present of getting traded to the Celtics

Emily Austen was able to interview new Celtics center Tyler Zeller. Doesn't sound like he's down about missing out on playing with LeBron and the Cavs. Kind of surprised that the Celtics had a press conference for Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, and the immortal Keith Bogans last Summer, but they have yet to introduce Zeller, Marcus Thornton, or Evan Turner. I'm actually...

Chris Forsberg: The acquisition of Tyler Zeller could really help Boston

ESPNBoston.com's Chris Forsberg feels that Tyler Zeller coming over to the Celtics could be a big help for Boston in the middle: For the size-deprived Celtics, landing a skilled 7-footer might have been the coup of a risk-free trade that also brought veteran guard Marcus Thornton and Cleveland's 2016 first-round pick.

Cavaliers center credits offseason weight gain to Krispy Kreme donuts

On NBA.com, Cleveland Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller is listed at 250 pounds.

The two faces of Tyler Zeller

He lost the mask. He joined the starting five. He put up a career-best 20 points, providing a flurry mid-range jump shots, right-handed hooks, and the occasional slash to the rim. Tyler Zeller, at least for one night, looked like an NBA-caliber center in what was just his 23rd professional contest — his first as a starter. Most importantly:  He was comfortable. After having...
