Jerami Grant has been a popular name in trade scuttle over the past week, being mentioned multiple times with various teams having a reported interest in his services.
First, The Athletic reported that the Portland Trail Blazers remain very interested in acquiring Grant’s services:
The Portland Trail Blazers have been the team linked most to Grant over the last few months and, per sources, remain among the most interested in acquiring Grant via trade. The Hawks certainly need to make some tweaks to get back to where they believe they belong on their timeline. Atlanta showed some form of interest in Grant during the 2021-22 season, per sources, and The Athletic believes that the interest still stands.
The Blazers have been a popular reported suitor for Grant going back to before the trade deadline, which makes sense, as his two-way ability would provide a big boost to the defensively-lacking Portland squad.
The Atlanta Hawks were also reported to have an interest in Grant, as written about by Mark Stein:
The Hawks, league sources say, continue to register trade interest in Detroit’s Jerami Grant. The Pistons, though, have not firmly declared that they are 100 percent moving him and are known to want a lot in return for Grant, who will soon be eligible for a four-year, $112 million contract extension. It is not yet clear whether the Hawks can outbid other Detroit suitors, most notably Portland, with a trade offer (presumed to include the No. 16 pick in the forthcoming draft) that finally convinces the Pistons to part with Grant. The Trail Blazers hold the No. 7 selection in the draft and a longstanding interest in the two-way forward.
The Hawks need help on the defensive end as much as Portland does, which makes their fit with Grant an obvious one.
Finally, the Bulls were also reportedly after Grant ahead of the deadline, according to Fischer, but weren’t willing to give up patrick williams in a potential deal:
Chicago’s willingness to part with Williams remains to be seen. The Bulls were strongly resistant to including Williams in preliminary conversations with the Detroit Pistons to acquire Jerami Grant before the trade deadline, sources told B/R. Adding Coby White, whose value the Bulls previously explored on the trade market, and Javonte Green would make the money work to match Gobert’s hefty contract.
With the offseason around the corner, look for the rumors surrounding Grant to continue.
