Al Jefferson switched to a vegetarian diet and lost 40 pounds over the summer.
Jefferson’s fantasy value doesn’t change much with this news. The big man is still backup to the young and talented Myles Turner. The Pacers also have some young bigs in Domantas Sabonis and TJ Leaf who will get minutes on this rebuilding team. The 32-year-old played 14.1 mpg last season and that should hold true again this year. If injuries occur however, his new shape could allow him to be an effective starter once again.
