The Detroit Pistons, Phoenix Suns and Atlanta Hawks are expected to be among those interested in forward Jerami Grant once the free agency period begins, according to Mike Singer of The Denver Post.
Grant is expected to opt out of his contract with the Denver Nuggets, and as Singer reported, the Nuggets and Grant share a mutual interest in a return. “We’ll see how it goes.”
Grant drew praise from Nuggets coach Michael Malone and teammates after a strong performance in the Western Conference Finals. The Nuggets were eliminated by the Los Angeles Lakers in five games.
Both forward Paul Millsap and center Miles Plumlee are due to become unrestricted free agents this offseason, which would shed $44 million off the Nuggets’ salary cap.
