$Signed a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Celtics in September of 2022. Waived by the Celtics in October of 2022.
Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Jake Layman was born in Norwood, Massachusetts in 1994. One of five sons born to Tim and Claire Layman, athletes in their own right from the University of Maine, Layman became a basketball star at King Philip Regional High School, where he averaged 26.0 points, 5.0 blocks and 4.0 assists as a senior. Layman was named a four-star prospect and graded 93 by ESPN.com; he chose the University of Maryland at College Park over Boston College, Iowa and Notre Dame. Layman graduated from Maryland after four years, leaving with a degree in American studies. In 2012, he played on the USA team that won the gold medal at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship, averaging 7.6 points per game en route to the tournament's top spot. You can follow him on Twitter @JLayman10 and on Instagram @J_lay_lay. Layman was named to the All-Big Ten honorable mention list for his senior season in 2015-16. He was just one of a dozen players in Maryland men's basketball history to collect 1,400 points (1,436) and 600 rebounds (674). Layman helped lead Maryland to the 2016 NCAA Tournament Sweet Sixteen. The Wrentham, Massachusetts native tied for first on the Terps in 3-point baskets (1.6) per game. He was second on Maryland in his senior season in free-throw percentage (83.2). As a junior in the 2014-15 season, he led Maryland in rebounds per game with 5.8. Layman was selected in the second round (47th overall) in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Orlando Magic. He was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers on draft night.

Continuing career abroad
FFree Agent
November 9, 2022
Layman signed a one-year contract Wednesday with Spanish club Basquet Manresa.
ANALYSIS
After failing to secure a roster spot with the Celtics after joining the club on an Exhibit 10 deal ahead of training camp, Layman has elected to continue his career overseas rather than heading to the G League, where he likely would have had to settle for a much lower salary. A 2016 second-round pick, Layman saw NBA action in each of the past six seasons, averaging 4.8 points, 1.7 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 12.8 minutes per game over 243 regular-season appearances.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
In consideration for roster spot
FBoston Celtics
October 14, 2022
Layman appears to be in the mix for one of the Celtics' final roster spots, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Layman and Justin Jackson appear to be the strongest candidates for a final spot on Boston's roster since Noah Vonleh will likely begin the regular season with the team. Layman has appeared in two preseason games this year, averaging 4.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 12.8 minutes per game. He'll attempt to impress during Friday's preseason finale against Toronto.

2017
Layman saw sporadic minutes with the Wolves last season, appearing in 45 games and averaging 5.1 points and 1.5 rebounds in 13.9 minutes. He'll again be in contention for reserve forward minutes, but he's far from guaranteed an every-game role. As a result, he can be ignored in almost every redraft league.
Layman was a starter in all three preseason games and it looks like he has the lead in the position battle over Juancho Hernangomez for minutes at power forward. However, playing time at power forward will likely be in flux early in the season. After signing a three-year, $11.5 million sign-and-trade deal after spending his first three seasons with the Trail Blazers, Layman set career highs with 9.1 points and 2.5 rebounds in 22 minutes per game. However, it's not clear he'll get the same opportunity to expand on those career numbers in a reconfigured Minnesota lineup.
Layman joined the Timberwolves in a three-year, $11.5 million sign-and-trade deal after spending his first three seasons with the Trail Blazers. He averaged career highs in points (7.6) and rebounds (3.1) in 2018, playing 18.7 minutes off the bench on a loaded Portland team. He played more games in his third season (71) than he did in his first two years combined (70), notching 33 starts. Despite the expanded role, Layman was often a low-usage, inconsistent player and actually saw his production fall when in the starting lineup. However, he did have a few big games, and Layman averaged 19.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 steal in the four games in which he saw at least 30 minutes. He could see more playing time with the Wolves in 2019-20, with a sixth-man ceiling if he can make a leap. Still, he's likely only worth drafting in deeper fantasy formats.
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.
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.
