NBA Comparison: Kirk Haston

Strengths: Leuer is coming off a solid season in which he averaged 15 points in his 3rd season at Wisconsin … At 6’10, Leuer presents matchup problems with his combination of size, outside stroke, and the ability to put the ball on the floor … He possesses excellent footwork in the post, using an array of post moves that make him unpredictable with his back to the basket … He shows nice touch in the post, and looks comfortable turning and shooting in any direction …  He has range up to 21 feet out, shooting 39% from downtown at the college level … His handle is better than average for a college forward/center, and he uses it to create open looks for himself in the post and on the perimeter … Has shown he’s aware of what’s available around him in terms of passing out of the post … Offensively he’s very efficient, shooting 52% from the floor while only turning it over once a game … Defensively Leuer has a high IQ, where he seems to position himself efficiently, illustrated by his (low) 2.1 fouls per game …

Weaknesses: A finesse guy, Leuer lacks in the strength and explosiveness department, which is troublesome when considering the power he would have to go up against at the next level … He lacks the ability to body up and keep his ground, which will be an issue on the post offensively, and guarding the post defensively … His lack of strength also hurts him under the boards, where he gathers in a mediocre 5.8 rebounds per game … Not laterally quick enough to keep up with perimeter and stretch 4s, and not tall or strong enough to guard stronger and taller centers at the next level …
