Everyone is talking about Grant being traded, except the team that would trade him.

While there are vast amounts of articles, podcasts and videos about Grant being traded, they are almost entirely from the side of NBA teams wanting him, and what they would – or should – give up to get him.

However, there has been very little chatter on the Pistons side on its desire to trade Grant, or even much what they would even ask for in return.

Except for a cursory ‘Detroit is open to trading Grant’ from Shams Charania or Adrian Wojnarowski, the Pistons side is very quiet.

Maybe because Detroit really does not want to trade him, unless they get some incredible offer.

Weaver also said he was open to trading the No. 1 pick in the draft. He did not, as we know now, so saying you are open to listening and actually doing it, are two different things.

Of course, in the world of the interconnected NBA, Stein might have gotten his information from a Detroit source. They may want the possibility that the Pistons would just keep Grant to be floated, thus raising the price.

Next. Only ‘Godfather’ offers for Jerami Grant accepted. dark

Wishing and coming up with proposed trades do not make them occur magically. Weaver and Grant are tight. If Grant tells him he does not want to leave Detroit, he will probably stay. But Grant also has to know that it is Weaver’s job to improve the team as much as possible.

If Detroit gets an offer that will improve their fortune’s for success, Grant needs to accept that Weaver will need to take it.
