Popovich Trying To Develop Leonard Into Bowen-Like Defender

After coaching one of the best perimeter defenders of the past decade in Bruce Bowen, Gregg Popovich is now trying to develop his latest top wing stopper, Kawhi Leonard, into something similar.

Popovich already sees a lot of the characteristics Bowen had in Leonard.

"Well we're trying to make him a defender, a top notch defender that can become 'All League' kind of defender like Bruce (Bowen) was," said Popovich of Leonard.

"I think he's got the mentality for it, the intelligence for it. He just needs the experience."
