Former Maryland Terrapin Jake Layman is on the move in a sign-and-trade between the Portland Trail Blazers and his new team, the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Layman is receiving a three-year deal worth $11.5 million dollars. Minnesota gets back the draft rights to 2013 second-rounder Bojan Dubljevic. Below is the obligatory Woj tweet.

Layman played his first three seasons with Portland and had his best season in 2018-19. He played in 71 games with 33 starts and averaged 7.6 points per game in 18 minutes of action. His play payed off and now he joins a Minnesota Timberwolves team that will likely have minutes for him as well.
While at Maryland from 2012-2016, Layman averaged 27 minutes per game, 10.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 36.5 percent shooting from three. His presence on the 2014-15 and 2015-16 teams helped the Terrapins earn a combined 55-16 overall record and 26-10 in Big Ten play.
