2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jon Leuer


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-10, 230

School: Wisconsin, Senior


Strengths:
  • Inside/outside threat
  • Range out to the three-point line
  • Can create his own shot, pull up off the dribble and hit jumpers
  • Great use of ball fake to create space between defender
  • Variety of moves on the block
  • Effective turnaround jumper
  • Able to post up smaller defenders; take bigger defenders off the bounce
  • High release on jumper makes it practically impossible to block
  • Dangerous in pick-and-pop situations
  • Good ballhandler
  • Runs the floor well



    Weaknesses:
  • Must become stronger
  • Needs to be more aggressive on the glass
  • Establishing solid position on the block
  • Struggles at times guarding more physical or quicker players, getting him into foul trouble
  • NBA Athleticism

    Summary: Leuer is an extremely versatile power forward for someone his size. Some scouts absolutely love his skill level and believe he is a first-round lock. Others are not quite as sold. Leuer has shown steady improvement during his time at Wisconsin and had a great summer with the USA Select team in which he drew rave reviews. If he can prove to be a more dominating player during his senior season, there is no reason to think he does not get numerous first-round looks.

    Player Comparison: Ryan Anderson. Despite being 6-10, Anderson relies more on his perimeter game at the next level which is something Leuer should be able to take advantage of as well. Both players have more finesse games for the power forward position, but their versatility is what allows them to stand out.
