The Denver Nuggets want to re-sign Jerami Grant, but they are expected to face competition from three NBA teams.

Per Shams Charania of The Athletic, these teams are the Detroit Pistons, the Phoenix Suns and the Dallas Mavericks, respectively.

Grant is expected to decline his $9.3 million player option next season and become a free agent. However, the player and Denver have mutual interest in signing a new deal.

Grant made a series of impressive performances in the playoffs, helping the Nuggets reach the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 2009.
