NY Knicks Small Forward Target #2 – Jerami Grant

Jerami Grant is the least likely player on this list to be traded but there’s surely a chance the Pistons can decide soon that they need to blow it all up and just go young from top to bottom.

I doubt Grant was acquired to be a building block for a team that just traded Derrick Rose for peanuts and bought Blake Griffin’s contract out.

In all likelihood, he was signed to eventually be traded for assets.

Grant, whom I’ve written about trading for earlier this season, is having himself one heck of a season.

Julius Randle likely has Most Improved Player locked down, but Grant will surely garner some votes.

Grant finished the season off with 22 points, 3 assists, 5 rebounds, a block, and a steal per game.

He had a down season shooting it from deep but still managed to cap off the season shooting about league average at 35%.

Grant’s versatility on both offense and defense make him a very intriguing target for the Knicks.

His cost via trade might be pretty high but I think he would be worth it.

A player that can guard anyone on the floor aside from the fastest of guards is a useful tool to have.

Similar to TJ Warren, Grant can play either the 3 or the 4, but he’s also played some small-ball 5 himself in the past.

Versatile athletes who can shoot…you can’t have enough of those on your team.
