Leuer lived up to his four-year, $42 million contract he signed over the summer during the first half of the season, but practically disappeared during the second. “I’ve got to talk to him,” said Van Gundy, the Pistons’ coach and president. “Jon was a very good player through the first 50 games of the year. Like, you look at the numbers — very good. One of the best power forwards in the league. And over the last 25 games, one of the worst.”
“That’s what I’m saying – this stuff is crazy,” Van Gundy said of media reports. “And I’m not going to be the guy to step up and say, ‘No, no, no. None of these guys are available.’ Because I’m not lying to anybody. “Here’s the thing: who do you think people call about? Are interested in? Your best players? Yeah. That’s who people call about. Yes, there’s always discussions about Reggie and Andre (Drummond) and Marcus (Morris) and Tobias (Harris) and Stanley (Johnson) and Jon Leuer. Always, yes. People call about them. There’s discussions about those guys on a daily basis. That’s who people call about. They are interested in those guys. So yes, those discussions take place all the time.”
It’s unclear how long Leuer will be out, but coach Stan Van Gundy indicated it’s likely not serious, but they’re being cautious. While Leuer is sidelined, Tobias Harris will start in his place. “Obviously, we’re concerned; we don’t think it’s any major problem but he’s got some fluid in there,” Van Gundy said following Tuesday morning’s shootaround at Golden 1 Center. “(Team physician) Dr. (Stephen) Lemos will look at the MRI today and then we’ll get a better idea of where we’re headed. From a comfort standpoint, he’s not able to go tonight.”
