The Blazers signed Jack Layman to a 3-year deal on Wednesday.
The 6’9 forward out of Maryland has drawn comparisons to Chandler Parsons in the past and the Blazers were known to be in the Chandler Parsons sweepstakes before he ultimately signed with the Grizzlies. He’ll likely see some action in a deep reserve role this season and will look to sharpen his skills in the remainder of the Summer league. He is capable of playing both forward positions, which is a need for the Blazers after losing LaMarcus Aldridge.
