Can Jake Layman Still Contribute?

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports Jake Layman had a disastrous 2020 season but there are still many reasons to like him going forward.

Wagering odds: Timberwolves more likely to trade No. 1 pick than keep it

We are just over a month away from the NBA Draft (Nov. 18), where the Wolves have the No. 1 overall pick for just the second time in franchise history. The first time they had it in 2015, they wisely chose franchise big man Karl-Anthony Towns. At that time, they were clearly at the start of a long rebuild after winning just 16 games the year before.
