Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Re-signs with Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zeller re-signed Saturday with the Celtics on a two-year, $16 million contract, Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports.

Zeller ended up getting lost in the shuffle last season due to the Celtics' glut of big men, so it wasn't expected that he'd be retained heading into the offseason. However, with Jared Sullinger leaving for the Raptors and Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) unlikely to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season, Zeller will provide some veteran insurance in the frontcourt. Zeller averaged 6.1 points and 3.0 rebounds in 11.8 minutes per game over 60 appearances last season, and while he could see those figures spike while Olynyk is out, the big man will likely get buried on the depth chart when the roster returns to full strength.

Tyler Zeller: Receives qualifying offer from Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zeller received a qualifying offer from the Celtics on Wednesday, making him a restricted free agent, Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports.

Zeller, along with fellow teammate Jared Sullinger, can now hit the open market on July 1, but the Celtics will be able to match any offer they receive from interested teams. The big man appeared to fall down the depth chart this past season and saw a career-low 11.8 minutes per game over 60 contests for the Celtics, so it seems unlikely that the team would match any offer sheet.

Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Scores eight points in season-ending loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyler Zeller scored eight points (4-6 FG) and added five rebounds across 12 minutes in Thursday's 104-92 Game 6 loss to the Hawks.

With the Boston Celtics trailing by 21 points entering the fourth quarter, Zeller was given a chance to try to will the team back to victory, but his efforts ultimately proved futile in the season-ending loss. Though he entered the season in a starting role, Zeller ended up dropping steadily down the depth chart throughout the season and made appearances in just three of the six games in the first-round playoff series. Zeller will become a restricted free agent in the offseason, and given his limited role this past season along with the existing crowd in the Celtics' frontcourt, it would be surprising if he donned the green and white in 2016-17.

Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Matches career-highs with 26 points, four blocks off bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyler Zeller recorded 26 points (9-15 FG, 8-9 FT), four blocks, three rebounds, and two assists across 25 minutes during the Boston Celtics ' 124-109 win against the Bucks on Friday.

Zeller had scored 22 points in 61 minutes over his last five appearances. However, he wound up breaking Isaiah Thomas' streak of 17 games in a row as the team's leading scorer. Though Zeller was spectacular on Friday, Saturday's matchup with the Hawks has much greater stakes since home-court advantage in the first round is up in the air. As a result, it might not be reasonable to expect a repeat performance from Zeller.

Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Plays seven minutes Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyler Zeller scored three points (1-1 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding three rebounds and one assist in seven minutes during the Boston Celtics ' 104-97 win over the Pelicans on Wednesday.

Zeller averaged 16 minutes per game in March, the most in any individual month during 2015-16. Still, he has been a healthy scratch from the rotation in four of the last eight matchups. The Celtics go small fairly often, plus the team possesses plenty of depth in terms of big men. Given the lack of certainty regarding his role, Zeller is not worth targeting in most leagues.
