Notes 
 The biggest risk when drafting Kawhi Leonard is his load management. Without suffering any major injuries, Leonard suited up for just 57 games last year. When he plays, you're getting a player that'll churn out top-10 scoring performances almost every night as well as top-five value in steals. In addition, his 7.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game were good for 33rd and 36th in the league, respectively. He deserves to be picked in the first round, but make sure to have someone to plug in for his inevitable healthy scratches.
