Celtics camp invitee Jake Layman’s 2021-22 NBA highlights

·1 min read

With the news Monday that veteran forward Jake Layman will join the team for training camp later this month, the Boston Celtics are assured of at least one serious competition for a roster spot.

The former Timberwolves big man will compete with Noah Vonleh, Bruno Caboclo, Denzel Valentine, Justin Jackson and Mfiondu Kabengele to make the Celtics’ roster. With veteran forward Danilo Gallinari likely out for the regular season or longer with a torn left ACL, there may be a significant opportunity for the Norwood, Massachusetts, native to play this season if he stands out at camp.

To see how he was playing last season, take a look at the clip put together by Tomasz Kordylewski embedded below.
