Jerami Grant recently signed a 5-year extension contract with the Portland Trail Blazers for a massive $160 million. However, after a lot of new young players around, he is feeling alone on the roster.
Moreover, it seems like the Portland Trail Blazers don’t need him anymore on the roster, as they are rebuilding with young players. Here are the top 5 teams that could trade for the Blazers’ power forward!

Golden State Warriors Land Jerami Grant
Jerami Grant is a two-way young and talented player who can score and defend well at different levels. He would be a great value addition to the Warriors.
Grant is an ideal defender and can guard multiple positions. The Warriors could acquire him and move some of their young guards alongside some future picks.

Miami Heat Trade for Jerami Grant from the Blazers
Grant is a versatile scorer who has the ability to create his own shots. He would be an ideal addition to the Miami Heat’s roster. He would not only complement Heat’s players like Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro, and Bam Adebayo but would also easily adapt to the Heat’s culture.

Cleveland Cavaliers Acquire Grant from the Trail Blazers
The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently struggling to find a consistent scorer for their frontcourt. Jerami Grant fits perfectly on the Cavs’ roster alongside Darius Garland, Jarrett Allen, and Evan Mobley.

The Cavaliers have a lot of assets to trade for the Blazers’ power forward in a trade deal.
New Orleans Pelicans Eyeing Jerami Grant
The New Orleans Pelicans could also emerge as a trade suitor for Jerami Grant. They have Zion Williamson, who is not readily available to play due to frequent injuries.
The Pelicans have Brandon Ingram and CJ McCollum, but McCollum has not been able to perform up to the expectations. So, it makes sense for the Pelicans to trade for Grant since they also have ample draft capital to trade for the Bulls’ star.

Indiana Pacers Trade for Grant from the Portland Trail Blazers
While the Pacers are already performing well in the NBA 2023-24 Season, they could further solidify their roster with Grant on the roster.
He could work as a weak-side rim protector for the team. Grant could also be utilized as an elite defender by the Blazers, making him an ideal player for the franchise.
