Jerian Grant is expected to become the latest member of a formidable backcourt in Milan, according to Aris Barkas of Eurohoops.

The former NBA guard spent the last season in Greece with Promitheas Patras averaging 15.2 points and 6.0 assists along with 3.5 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game in the regular season.

Ettore Messina has already talked with Grant for his role in Olimpia Milan next season. The 28-years-old guard spent five seasons in the NBA with the Knicks, Chicago, Orlando and Washington before joining Promitheas.

He has career averages of 6.1 points, 2.9 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game during his 5-year stint in the NBA. If he joins Milan, this will be his first experience in EuroLeague.
