TJ Leaf is headed to the Pacers

MEMPHIS, TN - MARCH 24: TJ Leaf #22 of the UCLA Bruins goes up for a dunk against Wenyen Gabriel #32 of the Kentucky Wildcats in the first half during the 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament South Regional at FedExForum on March 24, 2017 in Memphis, Ten

The Indiana Pacers made some noise among L.A. hoops fans on Thursday night, but not the way Lakers fans anticipating Paul George's arrival would've hoped.

The Pacers selected UCLA freshman TJ Leaf with the 18th overall pick, making the athletic big man the second one-and-done from the Bruins to go in the first round of this year's NBA Draft. 

Earlier in the day, former teammate Lonzo Ball went to the Lakers No. 2 overall.
