Trading Block: Meyers Leonard


Meyers Leonard finds himself on the trading block. Leonard is  a 7’1″ player with a  career 37.2% three point shot – there is definitely a market for Leonard. The problem is that Leonard is an awkward fit in Portland’s rotation with Jusuf Nurkic firmly at starting center, Ed Davis right there to back him up, and Caleb Swanigan waiting at the helm.

Portland is also well over the salary cap, and shedding Leonards nearly eight figure salary would really help them avoid the luxury tax. Here are the best trades for Leonard:

Atlanta: Meyers Leonard, Evan Turner, 2020 2nd Round Pick for Kent Bazemore, Marco Bellineli

Brooklyn: Meyers Leonard, Evan Turner, Maurice Harkless, 2020 2nd Round Pick, 2021 2nd Round Pick for Allen Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll

Cleveland: Meyers Leonard for Iman Shumpert

Milwaukee: Meyers Leonard for Matthew Dellavedova

Los Angeles: Meyers Leonard, 2019 2nd Round Pick, 2020 2nd Round Pick for Lou Williams, Sam Dekker

New Orleans: Meyers Leonard, Evan Turner for Solomon Hill, Omer Asik

Phoenix: Meyers Leonard, 2020 2nd Round Pick for Jared Dudley

Sacramento: Meyers Leonard, Evan Turner for Bogdan Bogdanovic, Garrett Temple, Vince Carter
