Cody's skillset doesn't lend itself to good rebound numbers. He will most likely take a role playing off the basket a lot more, which will hurt his offensive rebounding numbers, and he has really gotten bullied in the paint. I don't know how he's gonna handle NBA level physicality on a consistent basis.
There'll always be a slight difference between prospects .. I think Cody can up his rebounding averages in the NBA though. He'll be playing PF instead of C... I could see 14 and 7 his rookie year.
And I too think Bennett will win ROTY. I see him averaging 17pts 7 rbs and 3 assists
Zeller had 8 boards a game this year so not sure he'd be upping it too much. Athletically he's got about the same vertical as Lee and both guys can run the floor so wouldn't be surprised if they put up similar numbers, eventually.
NBA teams have to use a certain amount of cap space. Every signing looks bad if a team doesn't have at least one elite player. What are teams without a superstar supposed to do? Refuse to sign players?
