Leuer signed a four-year, $42 million contract with the Pistons prior to the 2016-17 season and had a relatively successful campaign in his first year in Detroit. While the team continued to struggle, missing the playoffs once again, Leuer averaged a career-high 25.9 minutes per game, while starting 34 of the 75 matchups he played in. He added 10.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists, which marked new highs in both points and assists. However, despite being tabbed as a decent shooter that can stretch the floor, Leuer saw his three-point percentage fall from 38.2 to 29.3 this past season, which often drew the ire of coach Stan Van Gundy. With Marcus Morris being shipped to Boston in exchange for Avery Bradley, the Pistons have a hole to fill at small forward. That will likely go to either Tobias Harris or Stanley Johnson, which could mean a few different things. If the Pistons go with Harris at small forward in a bigger lineup, that should allow Leuer to start at power forward. That said, if Johnson continues to improve and earns the top spot, Harris is expected to shift to power forward, which would send Leuer to a bench role. Either way, the Pistons are expected to give Harris plenty of run at the four, so Leuer isn't going to see a huge bump in playing time following Morris' departure. A similar role should be expected for Leuer once again and he could end up moving in and out of the top unit depending on the opposing matchup, which would once again mirror is 2016-17 season.

  2. Jon Leuer 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    The Wisconsin product spent the last two-and-a-half seasons with the Grizzlies before being dealt to Phoenix on draft night. A versatile forward with excellent size and above-average athleticism, Leuer has yet to truly get a chance to prove himself at the NBA level. Playing behind Zach Randolph, among others, in Memphis last season, Leuer averaged 4.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13 minutes per game across 63 appearances. He figures to have a better chance of taking on a more significant role with the Suns, particularly if the team parts ways with disgruntled forward Markieff Morris at some point. T.J. Warren, P.J. Tucker, and Mirza Teletovic will likely open the season ahead of Leuer on the depth chart, but given Leuer's ability to stretch defenses with his outside shot (career 37 percent) it wouldn't be a surprise if he works his way into the nightly rotation fairly early on. Regardless, he's best avoided in standard leagues until his role is more clearly defined.
  3. Jon Leuer 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Leuer is entering his fifth season in the NBA. Last season, he averaged 6.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 13 minutes through 49 games. He shot 49 percent from the field on 5.0 attempts per game, 47 percent from three on 1.0 attempt per game, and 79 percent from the free-throw line on 1.0 attempt per game. In three playoff games, he averaged 3.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, 0.7 assists, and 0.3 steals in eight minutes per game. Leuer added the three-point shot to his arsenal last year after shooting 25 percent on only 12 three-point attempts during his first three seasons. While the Grizzlies signing Zach Randolph to a two-year extension does not bode well for Leuer overall, if Leuer continues to improve his three-point shot, it's possible he'll be in line to receive ample opportunity off the bench in 2014-15. The Grizzlies drafted Jarnell Stokes, who averaged 12.2 points and 9.4 rebounds per game in the summer league. Despite drafting Stokes, Joerger and the Grizzlies love their three-point shooting, and so long as last year wasn't a fluke, Leuer will likely have every opportunity to open 2014-15 as Randolph's primary backup. Still, barring an injury to Randolph, he's unlikely to hold much value outside of deeper leagues.
  4. Jon Leuer 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Leuer spent time with Cleveland and Memphis last season, averaging 5.1 minutes in 19 games after the Grizzlies acquired him. They signed him up for three more years and feel he can play the quicker pace that coach Dave Joerger expects to implement this season. If he can be a stretch-four and hit his pick-and-pop opportunities, Leuer could fill a niche roster spot and give the Grizzlies a different frontcourt look for stretches in a game. At $1 million per year, Leuer comes cheap.
  5. Jon Leuer 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    Leuer did not enthuse the folks in Milwaukee, who traded him to Houston, who proceeded to waive him. He has a bit of potential, but not in any way that will likely be fantasy relevant.
  6. Jon Leuer 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    Leuer was the Bucks’ second-round selection in this year’s draft. He’ll struggle to find minutes in the Bucks’ frontcourt this season, but he could see a few minutes per game based on his ability to both stretch the floor and play down low.
