Trail Blazers restricted free agent forward Jake Layman is the next player on the move. He was traded wednesday to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of a sign and trade deal. Layman will make $11.5 million over three years.
Minnesota will use a $3.5 million trade exception created by the trade of Dario Saric to the Phoenix Suns to take on Layman. In return, the Blazers recieve a $1.8 million trade exception.
The move leaves Portland with two open roster spots that could be filled by free agents or by players on the Blazers summer league team.
