Zizic was recalled from the G-League on Tuesday, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.
Zizic spent one game with the Cavaliers' G-League affiliate, finishing with 14 points (5-12 FG, 4-4 FT), 16 rebounds, one steal and five turnovers across 29 minutes. He'll now return to the big club ahead of Wednesday's game against the Nets, though he likely won't see the court if it remains a competitive contest. Zizic remains off the fantasy radar.
Zizic was Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio to the Canton Charge of the G-League on Sunday.
Zizic hasn't been a featured part of the Cavaliers' rotation this season, so he'll use a trip to the G-League to take on some extended minutes with the Charge. Unless Cleveland's frontcourt becomes plagued with injuries, Zizic is not expected to play much of a role during his first year with the team.
Zizic will start at center for Sunday's preseason matchup with the Wizards, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.
The Cavaliers are resting nearly half the roster for Sunday's preseason contest, which includes Kevin Love, Jae Crowder and Tristan Thompson in the frontcourt. That gives Zizic an opportunity to start at center and he should see a fairly hefty workload with limited bodies available.
The Celtics will send Zizic, Jae Crowder, Isaiah Thomas and the Nets' unprotected 2018 first-round pick to the Cavs in exchange for Irving. Zizic, who is yet to play an NBA minute, was the 23rd overall pick in the 2016 draft, and while he's a relative unknown, he's considered to have fairly high upside. The 20-year-old may not be a major factor right away for Cleveland, but at the very least he represents another young asset to build around should LeBron James leave after the 2017-18 season.
Zizic has started at center for Boston in all three of their first Utah Summer League games, averaging 8.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.7 blocks from 22 minutes per game.
The Celtics must be very curious to see what they can get from their 20 year old, 6-foot-11 draft-and-stash, considering that Amir Johnson and Kelly Olynyk are both no longer in Boston. After Al Horton, the Boston depth chart for bigs is very thin. While Zizic's stats don't jump of the page, the organization must be pleased with his rim protection. The C's don't need Zizic to score, but they could certainly use help rebounding and blocking shots.
