UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: (RAW) VERSATILE, SCORING FORWARD

 

A mid-round pick outta UCLA, TJ Leaf provides scoring at the 3/4; benefits from uptempo action: Leaf’s game is transition-oriented, spaces the floor*; Leaf can score inside and out, attacks the glass well (especially on the offensive boards), has a nice finesse to his game; improving finisher near the rim (tries to dunk if there's an opening), has a few unorthodox runners; stretch-4 ability will be crucial to his success as he does tend to struggle finishing in crowded lanes; needs to get stronger, can he defend 4s?; must take advantage of spot minutes, grow into a primary role

 

*36-38% range is an early benchmark
