Timberwolves coach Ryan Saunders described Jake Layman as a "plug and play type of guy" during his press conference on Sunday.
"I found out that he is a plug and play type of guy," Saunders said when asked about Layman. "He is not going to complain about a role. He is a guy who can provide versatility and he is a team-first type of player and you need that." Layman missed much of this season with a left toe injury, appearing in 23 games (two starts) and posting averages of 9.1 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.0 3-pointers in 22.0 minutes per contest. How valuable he is fantasy-wise next season will hinge upon what happens with Juancho Hernangomez, who will be a restricted free agent this offseason. Timberwolves president Gersson Rosas has said in the past that he hopes to bring Hernangomez back, and that would hurt Layman's fantasy prospects even with his ability to fill a variety of roles.
