2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2015-16

When the Blazers faced the Thunder on Opening Night last season, the starting five was embarking upon its third year together, and Chris Kaman and Joel Freeland were present to provide support to mainstays LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez. Leonard was thus contained to spot duty for the first two months, and another period post-All-Star break, but he really came into his own in the playoffs. Playing alongside Aldridge for significant stretches, Leonard finished Portland's first-round series defeat to the Grizzlies with one double-double and 10 three-pointers made across five games. Prior to losing Aldridge and Lopez in free agency, the Blazers, perhaps seeing the writing on the wall, acquired Mason Plumlee in a draft-day deal and inked Ed Davis to a three-year contract. The additions placed a cloud over Leonard's potential to transfer from bench fodder to a consistent member of the frontcourt rotation. However, as the offseason continued, general manager Neil Olshey intimated that Leonard is expected to start at power forward next to Plumlee, making him the seeming heir apparent to Aldridge. Leonard's ability to stretch the floor lends credence to that thought process, as he can coexist with paint dwellers Plumlee and Davis without clogging up driving lanes for guards Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. As a result, Leonard's per-36 production (13.9 points, 10.6 rebounds, 2.0 three-pointers, and 1.4 assists) and rare shooting touch (he shot 51 percent from the field, 42 percent from three-point land, and 94 percent at the free-throw line) are a recipe for success, as long as he sidesteps foul trouble (5.3 per 36 minutes in his career).

2014-15

Whether it was the lack of playing time or his inability to make any strides as a defender, Meyers Leonard took a sizable step backward in his second year in the league, averaging 2.5 points (on 45-percent shooting) and 2.8 boards in nine minutes per game. Even when he garnered more consistent run after the All-Star break, the 11th selection of the 2012 NBA Draft experienced a reduction in overall production - 2.2 points and 2.6 rebounds in nine minutes per outing - while appearing in 19 of a possible 29 games on the way to 40 games played. One would think facing lesser competition, as the 22-year-old did at the Las Vegas Summer League, would improve his prospects, but an shoulder injury resulted in merely 6.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.0 assist, and 1.0 block in 28 minutes per contest. In actuality, the bane of his existence, and his biggest hurdle to NBA success, is an inability to give out contact while avoiding a foul. Until his career mark of 5.6 fouls per 36 minutes turns around, Leonard will find it nearly impossible to be handed playing time with Chris Kaman and Joel Freeland in the picture.

2012-13

While not set in stone, the 11th pick in the 2012 draft seems to be the frontrunner for Portlandís starting center this season. The 7-foot-1 Leonard may be pushed around at times as a rookie, like he was during Summer League, when he averaged 10.5 points (on 56 percent shooting), 8.3 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks over four contests. He should contribute boards, swats, an above average field goal percentage, fair free throw shooting, and the occasional double-double.
