Kawhi Leonard is a 6'7" forward from San Diego State University. He is a player that could play as a small forward or a power forward if the coach is going with a small lineup.
Leonard’s attributes that make him great are his speed and work ethic on the court. He will run and beat players with his quick first step and good footwork on the offensive and defensive ends.
Kawhi Leonard is very young and is leaving after his sophomore year of college. His young age and incredible upside makes him a top prospect. But he still has a lot to learn and with the right fit, he will mature into a multi-faceted player.
His age and potential may allow him to be picked by one of the lottery teams because he has star potential. The question marks about the type of scorer he is going to be may make him fall back. He will be a steal for one of the non-lottery teams.
With the right system he will find his way to score whether that is in the post or shooting from the outside.
He is not the player a team will look to as their star for the next season, but he is a bit of a work in progress. His notoriety and San Diego State's great season may take him out of the dark horse running.
But the question marks may make him fall out of the lottery picks.
Good Fits for Leonard: New Orleans Hornets, Miami Heat, New York Knicks
