The 6-foot-10 power forward declared for the 2017 NBA Draft after just one season at UCLA, where he posted 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. His incredible efficiency also turned scouts’ heads, as he made 61.7 percent of his shots from the field and 46.6 percent of his threes. His lack of lateral quickness, slight build, and unimposing wingspan raise questions about his potential as a defender, but the Pacers seemingly felt like his offensive upside was too good to pass up when he fell to them with the 18th overall pick. His path to playing time won’t be easy, though. He’ll certainly be behind Thaddeus Young, the projected starter at power forward. After that, Leaf will have to compete with the likes of Domantas Sabonis and possibly Bojan Bogdanovic for minutes at the four, as Leaf doesn’t project to be a pseudo small forward or center. All in all, it’s probably safe to avoid Leaf in the vast majority of Fantasy formats for his rookie campaign.
