In his first seven seasons in the NBA, Jerami Grant was but a mere benchwarmer until he became one of the more dynamic and underrated producers in the league, averaging over 20 points per game in his two seasons with the Detroit Pistons. But with Detroit looking to continue their rebuild with younger talent, all signs point to Grant being shipped by the team prior to the NBA trade deadline on February 10.
NitroBetting is ready to dish out some timely assists to our bettors all throughout the 2021-22 NBA season. This time, let’s explore the three best landing spots for Detroit Pistons forward Jerami Grant with the nine-year league veteran likely to relocate for the fifth time in his career.

3. Memphis Grizzlies
It’s quite possible that Grant makes a return to the Western Conference before the trade deadline lapses. The team who could very well make a move for him is Memphis, as the Grizzlies are currently having one of their better starts to a season in recent memory as one of the four best teams in the West to date.
Grant would be a superb addition to a Grizzlies squad that could certainly use another off-ball scorer to complement the banner campaign of rising star Ja Morant. At worst, the former Syracuse standout is a reliable big man off the Grizz’s bench who could put up starter numbers as a sound veteran presence behind Jaren Jackson Jr. in the rotation.
2. Chicago Bulls
Over in the East, a prime playoff contender who’s also interested in Grant’s service is Chicago, which is still embroiled in a tight battle for the top spot of the conference with Miami and Brooklyn.
1. Washington Wizards
Just recently, Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer reported that the Wizards are the frontrunners in making a deal with the Pistons for Jerami Grant. The 27-year-old has a lot of ties in the D.C. area. He played high school basketball in Hyattsville, Maryland, and his father, Harvey, played seven seasons for the then-Washington Bullets.
Washington head coach Wes Unseld Jr. also worked with Grant in the recent past, serving as an assistant coach for the Nuggets during Grant’s lone season in Denver in 2019-20. The Wizards are hanging around in the standings as a play-in contender for the playoffs right now, and someone like Grant will be a nice addition on an offense that relies heavily on the performance of All-Star guard Bradley Beal.
