The Portland Trail Blazers acquired the 47th pick of the 2016 NBA Draft from the Orlando Magic in exchange for $1.2 million and a 2019 second round pick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. With the selection, the Trail Blazers drafted Jake Layman, a 22-year old power forward out of Maryland.

Layman played four years at Maryland, averaging 11.6 points and 5.6 rebounds during his senior season. He shot 50.0 percent from the floor and a blistering 39.6 percent from deep. As an athletic big with shooting capability, he is considered a reasonable late-draft value.
