If Jon Leuer doesn’t see the inside of another airplane for a while, he probably won’t mind. Leuer was at his 16th pre-draft workout yesterday, this time in Milwaukee, working out for the Bucks.
The former Wisconsin Badgers will make one more visit today (#17) in Dallas with the Mavericks. He’s projected by most to be a second round talent in Thursday night’s NBA Draft, but his visit to Dallas just might be an indication that some view him as a potential late first round possibility as well. The Mavericks have the 26th pick in the first round.
The Bucks have the 40th pick in the second round and some mock drafts have them taking Leuer with that selection.
Leuer averaged 18.3 points with the Badgers last season and finished 3rd in the Big Ten in scoring. After his workout on Tuesday, Leuer said he thinks his offensive game is what sets him apart from other big men in the draft.
The Bucks also have the 10th pick in the first round. Among the six players in yesterday was Providence shooting guard Marshon Brooks. Brooks said the workouts for him have been more about showing teams he can defend.
