10 Realistic First-Round Options for Miami Heat in 2017 NBA Draft

T.J. Leaf Miami Heat

2. T.J. Leaf

T.J. Leaf Miami Heat

Having played this past season for UCLA, Leaf is a player many believe the Heat will select if he is available at No. 14. He’s 6-foot-10 and averaged 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds, while shooting 61.7 percent from the field in his freshman season. Leaf is also a big man who can play both away from the basket and with his back to the basket. He would provide a much-needed inside-out threat that Miami lost with the sudden loss of Bosh. Leaf shot 46.6 percent last season on 3-pointers and had 39 blocks. Expect the Heat to draft Leaf if he’s available.
