Jerami Grant, Portland Trail Blazers, NBA Trade Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

According to NBA insider Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports, the Portland Trail Blazers are not expected to seriously entertain trade offers for Jerami Grant.

Grant signed a five-year, $160 million contract with the Blazers in July before Damian Lillard requested a trade. Portland traded Lillard to the Milwaukee Bucks.

“Jerami Grant would represent an absolute difference-maker for both Dallas and the Sacramento Kings, another leading suitor for Siakam,” Fischer wrote. “The Kings have made Harrison Barnes, Kevin Huerter and Davion Mitchell available in trade conversations, sources said. However, Portland is not expected to seriously entertain offers for Grant, league sources told Yahoo Sports, in contrast to veteran point guard Malcolm Brogdon.”
