2018 Fantasy Outlook
Layman logged 35 games for the second time in as many seasons during the 2017-18 campaign, but he actually saw a drop in his already minuscule playing time. The Maryland product tallied just 4.6 minutes per contest and was an overall non-factor. He’s shot under 30.0 percent during each of his first two pro seasons as well, and he remains buried on the power forward depth chart heading into training camp. Layman did see plenty of opportunity in Las Vegas Summer League play (23.1 minutes across seven games), and despite solid numbers – 13.4 points (on 57.0 percent shooting), 4.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals – he isn't guaranteed a spot on the final roster.

Signs with Minnesota
FMinnesota Timberwolves
July 3, 2019
Layman will sign a three-year, $11.5 million deal with the Timberwolves, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Layman will be acquired in a sign-and-trade deal, although it's unclear what Portland's expected to get in return. The third-year forward translated an expanded role in 2018-19 into career-high averages across the board. Across 71 games, Layman averaged 7.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.8 threes in 18.7 minutes while shooting 50.9 percent from the field, 32.6 percent from three and 70.4 percent from the line. While it's unclear exactly what role Layman's expected to see in Minnesota, he'll likely find minutes at both of the forward positions.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Selected with the 47th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Layman came into the 2016-17 campaign with low expectations. That made his relatively unsuccessful rookie season not much of a surprise, as the 23-year-old forward averaged just 2.2 points across 7.1 minutes. Looking ahead to the upcoming season, Layman is still buried on the depth chart. While the Trail Blazers traded away Allen Crabbe, guys like Evan Turner, Maurice Harkless and Al-Farouq Aminu should dominate the minutes at the two forward spots, limiting Layman's ability to see the court. He should see an increase in games played, but unless he displays a much-improved shot (29.2 percent from the field and 25.5 percent from the three-point line), Layman is unlikely to have much of a role in the team's regular rotation.
