Leonard Miller Draft Profile

by Max Brandt


Leonard Miller proved to be an exceptionally productive player for the G-League Ignite, displaying a promising combination of size, athleticism, and developing skills that should capture the attention of NBA Draft teams intrigued by his potential.

While much of the focus this season was on Scoot Henderson, Miller emerged as a viable first-round prospect for the team. His ability to excel in transition, dominate in the paint against mismatches, and put up impressive numbers as a 19-year-old in a professional league made him stand out.

Averaging 16.9 points and 10.1 rebounds in 30.6 minutes per game, Miller's productivity across various categories is hard to ignore. Although he may not be the most refined player in the discussion for mid-to-late first-round picks, his significant room for growth is evident. With his exceptional athleticism and all the desirable qualities teams seek in modern big men, Miller is an enticing prospect.

As the draft progresses beyond the lottery, the possibilities for Miller become more wide-ranging. However, teams should start considering him as early as the No. 15 spot, where the Atlanta team could potentially be a good fit. He offers a valuable combination of immediate contributions and long-term potential, making him an ideal choice for teams willing to exercise patience.
