T.J. Leaf will be focusing on graduating into the spread option behind the starter at the power forward position for the Pacers next season.
Leaf didn’t get to play much in his rookie season as the Pacers kept getting better and with a playoff spot on the line, there wasn't as much chance to develop him in real-time NBA action as his deficiencies were exploited. The coaching staff has high hopes for Leaf and he is already putting the work in order to develop into a part of the rotation next year. "This is a very important summer for him." McMillan said. "He has to let his ability to put the ball in the basket, put the ball on the floor, he’s a legit spread four in this league and he will get stronger." The first glimpses of Leaf's offseason will come at the NBA summer league that runs in July in Las Vegas and this looks like a name to keep an eye for in deep dynasty leagues.
