The Detroit Pistons have reportedly traded Jerami Grant to Portland for a future first round pick on the eve of the NBA Draft.
ESPN’s Woj broke the story, adding: “Detroit swaps 2022 second-round picks -- getting 36 for 46 -- with Portland, too. Detroit gets a 2025 second-round pick back from Portland, and Portland sends the most favorable 2026 second-round pick between Portland and New Orleans to Detroit, sources said.”

Jerami Grant was entering the last year of a 3-year contract with the Pistons. He was considered one of the top trade targets in the league entering the offseason.
The move clears even more cap space for Detroit, now up to a projected $43 million, near a league high.
The NBA Draft is Thursday night and Detroit has the No. 5 overall pick.
