The Bucks intend to sign free agent center Meyers Leonard to a 10-day contract, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Leonard, 30, is 7-foot-0 and last played in the NBA in the 2020-21 season, when appeared in three games with the Heat. He played 51 games with Miami the year before that, averaging career-highs of 6.1 points and 5.1 rebounds.

He was traded by the Heat to the Thunder for forward Trevor Ariza in March 2021, then immediately waived.
