Meyers Leonard did not rule out the possibility of returning to the Miami Heat in the upcoming free agency.
Leonard believes there is mutual interest between him and Miami for a new deal, but things will become more clear in free agency.
“Now, I certainly have to continue to be aggressive and continue to advance as a player, but I know how impactful I can be. There’s times I watch film, and I’m like, ‘Holy s***, no wonder he just got an easy layup,’ because I’m pulling the 5 away from the rim.
I shoot above 40 percent from three the last three seasons. So, you know what, I’m blessed. I’m thankful. This offseason is short, but I start Monday and I’m going to grind my tail off. I’ll be ready to go.
The NBA is a business. I think there’s mutual interest between Miami and I, but we’ll see. There’s other teams that are very interested. I’m in a good spot. At the end of the day, I’m simply blessed and I’m very, very thankful for everything that’s been thrown my way,” Leonard said in an interview with 247 Sports.
Leonard averaged 6.1 points and 5.1 rebounds for the Heat last season.
