Meyers Leonard’s workout to lose with the Pistons today?

Chad Ford of ESPN, in his latest mock draft, has the Pistons taking Meyers Leonard:

The Pistons have a huge workout scheduled for Monday with Leonard, Tyler Zeller, Perry Jones, Terrence Jones, John Henson and Jared Sullinger. Going into the workout, it looks like Leonard has the slight edge over the rest of the group.

The Pistons really want to move Greg Monroe back over to the 4 and need a big, physical center to guard the paint. Leonard could be the guy, unless he disappoints in Detroit on Monday.

    You can’t really take anything being said right now seriously, it’s mostly bluffs and games. Until a couple of days ago both Langlois and Chad Ford were saying Henson has the edge. Though maybe you can’t take that seriously either.

    Smart move. Much more efficient to take a risk that also improves your current position than a similar risk that adds nothing else to your current position. If Greg Monroe was good facing centers he’ll be great facing power forwards. he’s got the speed and the size and the smarts.

      +1 on this.  I have no idea if Leonard is any good or not (a little embarrassed given he played so close, buy whatever).  But its a crapshoot either way.  Go with big sexy.

    Great to hear the Pistons and I are on the same page about this whole situation. Monroe is not a defensive anchor at C. If they went PF with the pick, Monroe would be forced into trying to be that his whole career, which would not end well.

    So it sounds like they have Drummond #1 and Leonard as the fall back plan #2, if Drummond doesn’t fall. That’s how I would play it too. Only thing is I want them to try hard to move up for Drummond, and not just be complacement at 9.

    If Drummond ends up being a star, and we had the chance to move up to get him, it’ll be hard to root for Leonard instead, knowing we could’ve had Drummond.

    I always wondered what the Pistons envisioned Monroe as, a center or a power forward. If this report is true, then they see him as a 4 which would necessitate them drafting a 5, which I concur with. He has trouble finishing over length and he still misses too many shots at the rim, playing against 4′s may enable him to finish a higher % of his shots.

    What do they see in Meyers Leonard. The dude is not even close to a star in the league. Why not take a shot at getting a star, something the team never had or maybe a player with at least some potential. The guys I would like them to take would be drummond, obviously. Barnes if he drops for whatever reason, terrance jones, perry jones or a wild card being Moultire. Like their portential way more than Leonard who will mostly likely be a good role player but not a future starter that the Pistons despertly need for the future, take a chance Joe.

      MoJo. What are you talking about. Leonard has a lot of potential. Hes 7’1” with very good athleticism and a solid frame. What more do you need to have great upside?
