Insiders: How do you decide who pays for dinner on the team? With you, Damian, Allen Crabbe, Evan Turner, Meyers Leonard, Moe Harkless and others all getting pay days, is it, “I pay this time, you pay the next?” Or is there a generous guy out of the group who just continues to take care of you guys? McCollum: “I’m on my rookie minimum still! That contract of mine doesn’t go into effect until next season, so those guys will definitely be picking up the tab – no doubt! I’m not making close to what they’re making yet.”
“Market value is what it is it. All I care about is that I know I’m playing to my fullest potential for my coaches to my teammates, that people believe in that… back to the four years and $41 million, I’d look at them like they’re crazy if they say it wasn’t enough. I mean, dear God, look at where I come from.” Leonard talked candidly about who he regards as the best shooting big men in the league, and why he thinks he is going to be an impact player. It’s difficult not to root for the guy.

Meyers Leonard ready by the start of the season?

The 11th overall pick in the 2012 draft, Leonard averaged 8.4 points and 5.1 rebounds last season, which was marked by injuries. He dislocated his left shoulder in November and before having surgery in March for a torn labrum that cut short his season. Leonard, who was surrounded at Friday’s news conference with family and friends, said he’s close to getting his full range of motion back. “My hope is to be ready right around the start of the season,” he said. “It’s a progression, first introducing rebounding, grabbing stuff overhead, then one-on-one, three-on-three, extending to the full court. We’ll see. You just never know.”
