Leonard is a strong and athletic combo-guard. He has good length, solid quickness, and he is vertically explosive. His burst has improved where he can separate from defenders in the open court as well out of the triple threat position. He can split double teams, get into the lane and either drop a floater or pull-up. He gets excellent lift on his shot and he has deep range. He can nail the mid-range pull-up off the bounce or nail the 3-point shot either off the dribble or off a pin-down. He is a productive rebounder and he competes at all times at both ends.
