Detroit Pistons: Trading Jerami Grant to Chicago

Chicago is loaded up with Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic, and Lauri Markkanen is set to be a restricted free agent, and speculation suggests he may not be back. If he leaves, perhaps the Bulls will be willing to offer their young point guard up.

Coby White has played the point guard role, but ever since his very first game in the league, he’s shown he can be a phenomenal catch and shoot scorer, offering Hayes and Isaiah Stewart a second scoring option when they need to kick the ball out.

Detroit would see a significant drop in payroll to maybe make a run at a free agent, and Chicago manages to stay under the line. The only question is–White has shown a lot of promise, so would Chicago part with him for a fringe All-Star after Grant’s breakout year?

Grant is by far the better all-around player, so Chicago would have to kick in a sweetener in the form of Tomáš Satoranský, a 6-foot-7 combo guard/wing who has shot 37 percent for his career from behind the arc.

These two would give the Detroit Pistons a boost in offense and 3-point shooting, but the Bulls aren’t the only team that could use the services of Grant.
