2 of the leading 5 gamers on the #Pistons payroll are dead-money agreements:
Blake Griffin: $29.8M
DeAndre Jordan: $7.9M
The next 2 highest-paid (Jerami Grant at $20M and Kelly Olynyk at $12.2M) have actually been hurt for more than a month. – 11:27 PM

Why does it make good sense for Washington to trade for Jerami Grant?
He’s an upgrade over Kuzma, Rui, and Deni, I think, however he’s older and more costly than all of them and the Wizards aren’t near to prepared to win seriously yet. I just don’t understand that rumor for them. – 4:06 PM

More on this storyline
The frenzy comes one year after Pistons general manager Troy Weaver swiftly declined any inquiry about Grant’s availability after the forward surprisingly chose Detroit in free agency. Sources say Detroit is now asking for two first-round picks or one first-round pick plus a high-upside young player. -via Bleacher Report / January 19, 2022
Sources say Grant expects to sign a lucrative extension in the ballpark of four years, $112 million this offseason. -via Bleacher Report / January 19, 2022
For any team to sign off on a trade for Grant, they’ll need assurances of his plans to re-sign this offseason, simply like Gordon did in Denver. Grant also has little interest in joining a new situation where he doesn’t feature as a primary offensive option, sources stated. -through Bleacher Report / January 19, 2022
