Zeller’s safety bubble was pierced two Wednesdays ago, when the Spurs called to offer him a job. With seven-time All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge declared out of the NBA’s restart in Orlando, Fla, because of shoulder surgery, the Spurs were in search of a tall, warm body to help fill out their frontcourt rotation. A career-long journeyman who has not appeared in an NBA game since April 2019, the 30-year-old Zeller checked the most important box in the Spurs’ hunt. He was available. “It’s been a whirlwind, but it’s been fun,” the 7-foot Zeller said. “I’m just trying to get used to the new coronavirus protocols. Just happy to be back, playing basketball, back on a team, especially a great team like the Spurs.”
“There is going to be a bunch of guys who need to step up and need to perform,” Poeltl said. “I’m looking at it as a positive thing. I think there’s a lot of guys on our team that are ready to prove themselves.” That includes a newly signed 7-footer who as recently as two weeks ago was content to spend the rest of the summer changing diapers. To say Zeller has bounced around the league in his seven seasons is an understatement. “It’s too many teams to remember how many it is,” Zeller said.
