21-year old small forward Kawhi Leonard has been selected to play in the Rising Stars Game. He has played in 29 games (28 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 28.7 minutes, 9.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.8 steals per game. He has now played in 93 games (67 starts) in his first two years with the Spurs and he is averaging 25.4 minutes, 8.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.5 steals per game. Leonard is going to get more of a chance to really show what he can do in a game like the Rising Stars one, as he won’t be sharing the ball with players like Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili.
