by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Blazers coach satisfied with center Myers Leonard's performance


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/8/2015) Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts had nothing but good things to say about center Meyers Leonard after Sunday's 109-98 win over the Rockets.

"He made a difference. He made his shots and got some rebounds when they were getting second chance opportunities, spaced the floor," Stotts said. "He runs every time and he did a lot of good things and really that spurt was a key spurt for us."

Leonard scored 12 points on 5 of 9 shooting from the field and grabbed six rebounds in 15 minutes of action.

"Actually I didn’t start off shooting the ball too well, but I think the main thing was my focus on the defensive end and work out there sets and try and rebound the ball, run the court and everything else kind of fell into place," Leonard said. "I was happy, I think I made my last four shots and I think my energy and running hard and making shots when I was open and that was the main thing."


Center Leonard steps up for Blazers' banged-up frontcourt

He's going to have ups and downs, but he's definitely going to get better, and he had a chance to show it tonight."

Blazers could be counting on more from Meyers Leonard in 2014-15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) The Trail Blazers were in the market this offseason for a "stretch-four" player rather than pursuing a traditional center, but failed in their pursuit to sign the likes of Spencer Hawes, Josh McRoberts and Channing Frye. 

In the end, however, they appear to have an internal option to fill the role in third-year player Meyers Leonard, who is turning into a "hybrid" big man that can play power forward and center.

"That's what he is," point guard Damian Lillard said, per The Oregonian. "He's a guy that can really shoot the ball. I think we should accept the fact that Meyers is a guy that can shoot the ball, a guy who can really jump, who can really run the floor, and has good hands. I think that's what he's really good at. He's really good at a lot of things and the sooner he can get comfortable and be confident in being who he is, I think that's when he'll be really good for us."

Leonard has averaged just 4.4 points and 3.4 rebounds per game through his first two NBA seasons, but the Blazers feel he is a better player than his numbers indicate.

"He's a very good perimeter jump shooter," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "He hasn't shown it in NBA games, but he does have three-point range. He shoots midrange jump shots with confidence. It's just transferring that over from drills and practice into games. It's just a matter of him getting used to being put in that position and delivering."
