Pistons trade Jeremi Grant to Blazers

Detroit will receive a first-round pick in the 2025 draft

The Detroit Pistons sent Olympic champion Jerami Grant to the Portland Trail Blazers for a first-round pick in the 2025 draft.

Detroit will also receive the 36th pick in Thursday's draft and what would have been Milwaukee's first-round pick in 2025.

ESPN first reported the deal, as well as details of the 2025 pick, which is protected if it falls in the top four.

Jerami Grant's salary — about $21 million for next season — is roughly the same amount, except for the trade exception Portland created in February when it sent CJ McCollum to New Orleans.

This will give Portland a boost after a disappointing season in which star Damian Lillard missed most of the year with injury.

Lillard and Jerami Grant were teammates on the US Olympic team that won gold at the Tokyo Games last summer.

The Pistons now have about $44 million for this summer.

The free agent market opens next week.
