Former Maryland forward Jake Layman has been selected with the No. 47 overall pick and will be headed to the Porland Trail Blazers.
Layman was officially selected by the Orlando Magic, who have proposed a trade that would send the former Terrapin to Portland.

Layman, who seriously considered leaving Maryland after his junior season before returning to play out his final year of eligibility in 2015-16, averaged 11.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while shooting 50 percent from the floor, 39 percent from three, and 83 percent from the foul line.
Because of personnel restrictions, Layman was not used at the stretch four spot as much as he probably would have liked as a senior. At 6-9 with a max vertical of 39.5 inches and that type of three-point stroke, he would have been a serious matchup problem for college power forwards.
In small-ball lineups at the NBA level, he could bring that same kind of versatility.
