   2017 NBA Manifesto

Jake Layman
SF, 6’9, 210lbs, 23 years old, 1 year of experience

Not a good rookie season for Layman, who shot 29.2% from the field, mostly from three-point range, and making no other impact on the court in any way other than that. He scored 42 points in his first month, then only 36 the entire season after that. It is tough to do much in garbage time, which is mostly the time Layman got, and the versatile high IQ combo forward he showed himself to be in his Maryland career is still in there, But he did nothing to earn a bigger role and, if he returns, really needs to show something as a sophomore to keep his NBA place. He didn’t do much on assignment, either.

Player Plan: Two years of minimum salary remaining, with 2017/18 guaranteed. Probably keep, but needs to start excelling.
