Leaf recorded two points (1-1 FG) and one steal in Tuesday's win over Indiana. Leaf made his Trail Blazers' debut during the blowout victory against his former team. The forward had spent the past three seasons with the Pacers and enjoyed his best campaign in 2018-19 averaging 3.9 points and 2.2 rebounds. Leaf signed a two-way deal with Portland in early April.
Leaf signed a two-way contract with the Trail Blazers on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The UCLA product was the 18th overall pick in 2017, but he never truly settled into a consistent role during his three seasons with the Pacers. Indiana traded Leaf to Oklahoma City in November and he was waived by the Thunder just before the start of the regular season. In Portland, Leaf will simply provide some frontcourt depth. He's highly unlikely to make a fantasy impact this season.
Leaf was waived by the Thunder on Saturday, Sportando.com reports. The Thunder traded for Leaf in November and appeared in two preseason games for the team, totaling eight points and seven rebounds during that time. If he finds a spot with another organization, Leaf is unlikely to carry much fantasy relevance this season.
Leaf was traded from the Pacers to the Thunder on Sunday in exchange for Jalen Lecque, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Leaf was never able to secure a significant role with the Pacers, but he'll get a chance to carve out minutes in Oklahoma City. The 2017 first-round pick saw his playing time drop during the 2019-20 season, as he averaged 3.0 points and 2.5 rebounds over 7.9 minutes per game while appearing in just 28 contests.
Leaf posted four points (1-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes during Thursday's 91-88 scrimmage victory over the Blazers. Leaf was awful from the field, but he helped make up for it by his strong work on the glass and no turnovers. With Domantas Sabonis' availability for the first seeding game unclear due to plantar fasciitis, Leaf may end up being called upon to fill some frontcourt minutes for the Pacers.
