Jerami Grant is expected to test the free agency this offseason, after his impressive performances in the Orlando “bubble” with the Denver Nuggets.

Grant will opt out of the remaining $9.3 million of his contract to receive a better offer, according to Mike Singer of The Denver Post.

A league source suggested Grant could command anywhere from $14 million to $16 million annually over several years,” Singer wrote.

Denver has some crucial decisions to make in the upcoming offseason, with Grant being a great defensive wing, while he made a huge leap in his offensive play in the last two seasons.

The Nuggets are expected to have about $30 million in cap space to move in the free-agent market with Paul Millsap, Mason Plumlee and Torrey Graig being also free agents this offseason.
