Leonard, who appears to be on the verge of a breakout season, said extension talks will not affect his play in training camp. “It’s obviously come up, it’s not like I haven’t heard about it or discussed it,” Leonard said. “But every day it’s a simple focus on getting better, figuring out what Coach and the team needs from me. I feel like if I let my play and my leadership and different things take care of themselves and (be) a good person, everything else will take care of itself. So I’m focused on basketball. My agent, that’s why I hired him, and that’s why he does his work and I just try to prove myself on the court.”

After a busy summer that included his wedding, some basketball and, last night, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a Hillsboro Hops game, Meyers Leonard is fired up for another NBA season. And fired up to help Damian Lillard with leadership on this year’s team. “Obviously, Dame and I are the guys who have been here the longest and he’s going to be our leader. But I hope to be right there by his side, kind of a co-leader, right there having his back through the ups and downs,” Leonard said Thursday night in Hillsboro.
