The Detroit Pistons only real trade asset is Jerami Grant

Jerami Grant

Odds of being traded: Moderately high

Possible return: Young NBA-ready player, expiring contract and a first-round draft pick

I do think there is a possibility that the Detroit Pistons will not trade Jerami Grant and there are certainly pros and cons to signing him to a long-term deal.

But all indications are that a Grant trade may be inevitable, as he is one of the only available impact players on the market, a lot of teams have called about him and his value may never be higher even though he is hurt.

Grant is on a team-friendly deal for his level of production and it runs through next season, so teams know they’ll be getting a solid piece at a good price if they trade for Grant.

Of course, he is one of only a couple of players on the Pistons who resemble NBA talent, so if Weaver can’t get at least one NBA-ready player back, I could see him balking at moving Grant and potentially taking a step back in the restoration.

But if a bidding war breaks out and some team is willing to offer up a haul for Grant, expect Troy Waver to empty the clip and make a move.
