Lakers’ Trade Proposal For Pistons’ Jerami Grant Falls Flat … So Far

It seems as if the Lakers are trying just about everything to find some help for their fairly rocky season, and as we relayed in early December, that includes eyeing Pistons forward Jerami Grant.Jerami Grant

In fact, per Marc Stein of The Stein Line, the Lakers have already put together one package for Grant. That would be none other than guard/forward Talen Horton-Tucker, guard Kendrick Nunn and their 2027 first-round pick.

But as Stein reported, the Lakers have not so far had any luck.

That’s a little bit of a surprise, as that’s a pretty good offer for Grant, if those are the indeed the extent of the talks. Granted, both Nunn and Grant have been injured, so that perhaps complicates things.

But there is still time left between now and the Feb. 10 trade deadline, and if we’re sure of anything, it’s that the Lakers are trying hard to make a deal. Right now, it’s just to no avail.

“The offer of a pick, plus Horton-Tucker and Nunn, is the best the Lakers can do in trade talks,” RealGM wrote. “They aren’t trading LeBron James or Anthony Davis. Russell Westbrook isn’t someone teams are interested in without being paid to take on his contract. The remainder of the Los Angeles players are on minimum contracts.”

As for first-round picks, the Lakers do not have one available to trade before 2027.

  1. Last paragraph:
    Sounds like the SAME sort of position the CAV’s were in when “you know who” was HERE.
    LJ surrounded by a couple of BIG contract players, & so many minimum contracts– & no one to take on another or trade you someone of valuable offensive or defensive help in return. So stagnation sets in ! ! ! & when a big contract player(Davis) gets injured,,, well it just doesn’t go well for quite awhile,,,, & maybe much longer.
