Report: Lakers Among Teams Pursuing Pistons Forward Jerami Grant

The Pistons reportedly have a number of suitors for forward Jerami Grant, and one championship contender appears eager to acquire the eighth-year forward.

The Lakers are "among the teams pursuing" Grant, per The Athletic's Shams Charania. The Blazers are also among the teams reportedly interested in Grant. 

Detroit's forward is expected to be out for significant time due to a thumb injury, but Grant is an impact piece when he is on the floor. Grant is averaging 20.1 points per game in 2021-22, and he posted a career-best 22.3 points per game mark last season on 35% from three.
