The Portland Trail Blazers have signed recently drafted forward Jake Layman to a 3-year contract, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Trail Blazers drafted Layman with the 47th pick of the 2016 draft, which they acquired from the Orlando Magic in exchange for $1.2 million in cash considerations and a future second round pick.

As a senior at Maryland, Layman averaged 11.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. He is included on the Trail Blazers' Las Vegas Summer League roster, so we will get a better look at him in a matter of days.
