After the Wolves took a big swing and missed on current Warriors guard D'Angelo Russell, they pivoted their free-agency strategy to become young and flexible, from the perspective of the balance sheet.
They gave out one-year deals to young veterans Noah Vonleh and Jordan Bell looking for another opportunity to showcase their games. They acquired some similar players such as Shabazz Napier and Treveon Graham in the sign-and-trade that facilitated Russell's move to Golden State from Brooklyn.
Layman was the only free agent signing to get more than one guaranteed year. He signed for three years, coming over from the Blazers in a deal worth around $11.
