Meyers Leonard said that he is ready to take on a leadership role with Damian Lillard. CSN NW
The Scoop: "Obviously, [Damian Lillard] and I are the guys who have been here the longest and he's going to be our leader," Leonard said. "But I hope to be right there by his side, kind of a co-leader, right there having his back through the ups and downs." Leonard will battle Ed Davis, Noah Vonleh and Mason Plumlee for minutes this season, but he figures to have a substantial role even if doesn't end up starting. Leonard has plenty of upside and his 3-point range is intriguing, so give him a look in the later rounds.
