Jerami Grant has declined his player option, worth $9.3M, in order to become an unrestricted free agent.

Grant is in search for a new, lucrative deal either with the Denver Nuggets or another NBA team.

Grant, who averaged 12.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.2 assistsĀ for the Nuggets last season, helped Denver reach the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 2009.

Several teams have already expressed their interest to sign him.
