Meyers Leonard: Draft Profile
Meyers Leonard had a lot of potential coming into the NBA in 2012 at age 20, but so far throughout his young career he has not been able to crack the Trail Blazers regular rotation. Leonard has only played in 109 games in his career–9 of those being starts.
In the offseason Portland tried to recruit big men that could shoot–even though they have Leonard on the roster. Guys like Spencer Hawes and Channing Frye were on the Blazers radar, but luckily for the young big man, none of those resulted in a contract.
Rumors out of Portland’s training camp say Leonard will be playing some power forward, and the Blazers want to use him in a “hybrid” stretch 4-5 role. This will allow Meyers to do what he does best–shoot the ball. If Portland finally gives the third year player some run, he could proves to be a valuable fantasy asset. Unless you are in deeper leagues, Leonard should not be drafted–however, keep an eye on him, he may surprise this season. If Aldridge or Robin Lopez go down with injury, Leonard may become a must own.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/meyers-leonard-draft-profile/BasketballNews and UpdatesPortland Trail BlazersMeyers Leonard had a lot of potential coming into the NBA in 2012 at age 20, but so far throughout his young career he has not been able to crack the Trail Blazers regular rotation.
