Layman, A Potentail ‘Stretch Four’ For The Blazers

Layman, A Potentail ‘Stretch Four’ For The Blazers

Is Jake Layman a primed to capture a new role for Portland next season? The Portland Trail Blazers have 15 players under contract for the 2018-19 season after Wade Baldwin IV’s contract became guaranteed last month. Unlike last season’s roster, Portland’s current squad is bursting at the seams with perimeter players, but they’re light on big men. Ed Davis, a staple in the Blazers’ post rotation for the past three seasons, will be suiting up for the Brooklyn Nets next year. Given the roster’s current construction, Davis’ role will be filled by a relatively unproven frontcourt...

Fresh off of NBA Summer League, the Portland Trail Blazers are ready to see if any of their young, talented players can step up to fill minutes during the regular season. 2018 NBA Draft first-rounder Anfernee Simons, fellow rookie Gary Trent Jr,, and comparative veterans Wade Baldwin IV and Jake Layman will all compete for lower rotation spots.

Analysis: Wade Baldwin’s Potential to Impact the Trail Blazers

Analysis: Wade Baldwin’s Potential to Impact the Trail Blazers

Wade Baldwin IV has Portland worked up into a (relative) frenzy heading into the 2018-19 NBA season. But will he be able to deliver? It’s weird for first round draft picks to get cut in the NBA. REALLY weird for a first rounder to get cut after only one season, like the Grizzlies did to Wade Baldwin IV last October. That level of ignominy is generally reserved for only the most hopeless of hopelessly failed prospects. Yet Trail Blazers fans are in a near frenzy over Baldwin, who caught on with team at the end of last season and went on to earn All-Summer League second team honors earlier...
