(1) Meyers Leonard = raw and not ready to help right now but he has loads of potential.
(2) Roy Hibbert = best player in group.
(3) Timofey Mozgov = jumper and more physical strength than Thabeet
(5) Haddadi = better offense and rebounding than Fes
should meyers leonard be givin a lot of minutes?
or play in d-league?
M.Leonard shouldn't play a lot of minutes but I would like to see him get more playing time than he is currently getting. His minutes have been trending downwards all season as Portland tries to make it's push for the playoffs.
I liked where Meyers Leonard was at as a 18-20mpg guy earlier in the season. But M.Leonard has has been down around 10-12 minutes since then and below 10 minutes a game so far this month. I'd like to see Portland get M.Leonard back up around or slightly above 20mpg.
M.Leonard is still very raw. He won't help the team much in the immediate sense. But I'd like to see Portland use this season to get M.Leonard some experience. He is an important long term piece for the team.
