Illinois sophomore center Meyers Leonard has been working his way up draft boards since declaring his intention to turn pro and now appears to have very good odds of landing in the lottery.

Leonard averaged 13.6 points and 8.2 rebounds per game for Illinois during the 2011-12 season. That production came after a freshman season during which he played sparingly.
