Ty Jacob Leaf is an Israeli-American; Point Forward. 20 years old, 6'10"/225 Ibs.

Leaf played for just one season with UCLA alongside Lonzo Ball. In as much as Ball helped him grow as a player, i feel it made people overlook him. According to NBA Math's total points added (TPA) metric, only 28 players in the entire NCAA managed to score more points than him, and only 3 are first year players like him.

His stats last season for UCLA is 16.3 PPG, 8.2 RPG, 2.4 APG. His former team-mate and one of the favorites in this award Lonzo Ball stats for the same season was 14.6 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 7.6 APG.

A few of Leaf highlights/statistics from last season: He scored 32 points against Washington State which was the second-highest total for a freshman in UCLA history behind Don MacLean’s 41 in 1988. A top-5 finalist for the Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year Award. One of the three Pac-12 players to rank among the top 10 in the conference in scoring and rebounding. Finished second in the Pac-12 with a 61.7 field goal percentage. Picked up All-Pac-12 First-Team and All-Freshman Team recognition in his debut season at UCLA.

Aside from the College exploits, Leaf has started to shine on big stage already and Pacers fans can't wait for the season to commence.

Pacers won their first preseason game 104-86 at Milwaukee Bucks, Leaf scored 2/3 (67%) 2-pointers on 17" minutes.

Second game, Pacers won 106-102 at Cleveland Cavaliers. Leaf was Pacers highest scorer on the night. With 22" minutes, he scored 2/2(100%) free throws, 2/5(40%) 2-pointers and 4/5(80%) 3-pointers.

Third game, Pacers lost 107-97 at Detroit Pistons. Leaf scored 4/7(57%) 2-pointers.

T.J Leaf is a long shot, but i feel he will get his minutes at Pacers and he is an effective scorer on post. He is definitely not and should never be a 60/1 shot. As low as 28/1 with SkyBet, 40/1 with BetStars. Not all bookmakers have him listed, definitely being underrated here.
