Jerami Grant is expected to enter the free-agent market in the upcoming offseason, after his great performances with the Denver Nuggets in the Orlando ‘bubble’.
According to Denver Post’s Mike Singer, the versatile forward could draw interest from the Atlanta Hawks, the Detroit Pistons and the Phoenix Suns.
“At least three other teams are expected to have interest in luring Grant from the Nuggets, according to two league sources.”
“Those three teams are the Atlanta Hawks, the Phoenix Suns and the Detroit Pistons. Only a handful of teams will have cap space, including those three. It’s always possible a team like Orlando makes a trade and create the requisite space to go after Grant.”
Grant will become an unrestricted free agent once he declines his 2020-21 player option with the Nuggets worth $9.3 million.
He averaged 12.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists while shooting 47.8 percent from the field, 38.9 percent from beyond the arc and 75 percent from the free-throw line in 71 games with the Nuggets in the shortened 2019-2020 season.
