Grant produced 24 points (10-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, six assists, four blocked shots and two steals across 35 minutes in Saturday's 120-100 win over the Heat.
Grant played flawless basketball and didn't turn the ball over once in 35 minutes on the floor. Detroit's leading scorer also filled up his line in the peripheral categories. Grant now has 17 blocked shots, and 13 steals on the season.
Grant scored a team-high 22 points (7-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT) while adding four rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 110-101 loss to the Bucks.
He matched Giannis Antetokounmpo in scoring on the night, but that's about the only area in which Detroit was competitive in a game that wasn't as close as the final score suggested. Grant has popped for at least 22 points in 10 straight games, averaging 26.4 points, 6.5 boards, 2.9 threes, 1.7 assists and 1.2 blocks over that stretch, and on a Pistons roster lacking in other reliable scoring options, there's no reason to think he's going to slow down any time soon.
Grant and the Pistons won't play Friday against the Wizards, as the game has been postponed, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The Wizards will not have the required eight players available to field a team. Grant and the Pistons are still playing Wednesday against the Bucks.
Grant finished with 28 points (9-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one block across 36 minutes Sunday in the Pistons' 96-86 loss to the Jazz.
Grant has been spectacular in a high-usage role for the Pistons this season, with his shooting efficiency having barely suffered despite the fact that he's more than doubled up his field-goal and three-point attempts per game from 2019-20. The 26-year-old has now eclipsed 20 points in each of the past nine games while chipping in 6.8 boards, 2.9 treys, 1.8 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.7 steals per contest during that stretch.
Grant scored 31 points (10-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 8-11 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two assists and a block in 42 minutes during Friday's 110-105 overtime win over the Suns.
One game after setting a new career high by scoring 31 points against the Bucks, Grant went out and did it again, leading the Pistons to only their second win of the season. Detroit's biggest offseason acquisition has been everything the club could have hoped for after a lackluster opening night, dropping at least 22 points with multiple made three-pointers in eight straight games with three double-doubles along the way.
Grant notched a career-high 31 points (9-20 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 11-11 FT) to go with nine rebounds and an assist across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 130-115 loss to the Bucks.
Grant wasn't very accurate with his shot, but the fact that he made all of his attempts from the charity stripe certainly helped. Grant has established himself as the Pistons' top offensive threat this season, having scored 22 or more points in each of Detroit's last seven contests.
Grant had 24 points (10-25 FG, 4-10 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal during a loss to the Bucks on Monday.
Grant's 25 field-goal and 10 three-point attempts marked career highs for him. Grant is currently averaging 18.6 shots, more than double the average he had last year in Denver (8.9). It appears the 26-year-old will have his best chance to produce a breakout campaign if he's efficient this season.
Grant delivered 22 points (8-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Sunday's 122-120 loss to the Celtics.
Grant is getting a legitimate chance to shine after battling for time with Michael Porter in Denver. The Pistons provide little competition at the position, so Grant will be in line for 30-plus minutes per game with his new team. He accumulated 46 points over the weekend split against the Celtics and should continue to start in the frontcourt alongside Blake Griffin.
Grant scored 24 points (9-24 FG, 2-9 3PT, 4-5 FT) to go along with four rebounds and a steal across 37 minutes in Friday's win over the Celtics.
Grant continued to take on a huge scoring role, hoisting at least 20 shots from the field for the third consecutive game. He hasn't scored efficiently in that span -- he's shot only 27-for-65 from the field -- but is still averaging 26 points. Grant has played over 35 minutes in four of five contests this season, also allowing him to rack up boards and blocks early on.
Grant scored a team-high 27 points (9-21 FG, 3-9 3PT, 6-7 FT) to go with seven rebounds three steals, two blocks and one assist across 37 minutes in a 116-106 loss to Golden State on Tuesday.
Grant duplicated his scoring performance from Monday despite scoring just six points from the field in the first half. With Blake Griffin exiting early after suffering a concussion, scoring duties fell on the shoulders of the forward who's averaged 27.3 points in his last three games. Grant will continue to have increased fantasy value as the clear-cut primary offensive option for Detroit with Griffin and guard Killian Hayes likely to miss time.
Grant had 27 points (9-20 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block during a 128-120 defeat at Atlanta on Monday.
With both Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose out, Grant was placed with the task of being Detroit's primary shooter and scorer. He played reasonably well, recording his first game with at least 25 points since Feb. 28. Grant's fantasy value will be at its best in games Detroit is without Griffin or Rose, likely scenarios considering their injury history.
Grant scored a team-high 28 points (9-14 FG, 4-8 3PT, 6-8 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 43 minutes during Saturday's 128-119 double-overtime loss to Cleveland.
After a performance that resembled his time as a sixth-man in Denver, Grant delivered the production that Detroit hoped to see from their new forward. The 26-year-old scored 14 points in the third quarter alone to go along with two blocks and seven defensive boards that helped steal a lead going into the fourth. With Grant taking on more responsibility in Detroit, the forward will need more performances like this to take scoring pressure off Blake Griffin as the Pistons look for their first win of the season.
Grant recorded 14 points (4-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and a steal across 33 minutes in Saturday's 99-96 preseason loss against the Wizards.
Grant was one of six Detroit players that scored in double digits and, while he paced the Pistons in points, he also needed 14 shots to score 14 points, so the accuracy wasn't really part of his game. Grant averaged 12.0 points per game with the Nuggets last season, and he is expected to have a large role in the Pistons' rotation moving forward.
Grant recorded 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3PT, 2-3 FT) and two rebounds in the 97-86 win on Thursday.
Grant had struggled in his first two pre-season games with his new team, but found some form in the win. The forward put together a good floor game, but did not offer much else. He also turned the ball over numerous times for the second straight game. Grant has come to Detroit knowing that he can become something more than a bench or rotation player when he was in Denver, but surely needs to develop a more well-rounded game if he is to fulfill that potential.
Grant had six points (1-11 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and two blocks in 22 minutes of action during the Pistons' 90-84 loss to the Knicks on Friday night.
Grant's first action in a Pistons uniform was not exactly a sight to behold. A silver lining would be the confidence and opportunity that comes along with firing up 11 shots in 22 minutes -- especially coming from a crowded Denver offense. Grant has shot around 49 percent from the field, including 39.1 percent from three, over his previous two seasons. He provides a versatile skill set at the power forward position and carries extra upside in his new environment.
Grant's deal with Detroit has been switched to a sign-and-trade with Denver, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
The Pistons will also receive the rights to Nikola Radicevic, who will remain overseas, along with Grant in exchange for cash considerations. It was previously reported that Grant agreed to terms on a three-year, $60 million contract with the Pistons on Friday.
Grant and the Pistons have come to terms on a three-year, $60 million contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Grant joins a plethora of new players in Detroit, as the Pistons have been very active in free agency. However, given the size of his contract, it seems likely that the plan is for him to start at small forward. The 26-year-old carved out a nice role in Denver last season, as he averaged 12.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 0.7 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.4 triples across 26.6 minutes in 71 games.
Grant will decline his $9.3 million player option for the 2020-21 season, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
Back in October, Grant hinted that he was leaning toward declining the option, and with the NBA's transaction window now open, the forward has made the decision official. Grant is coming off a strong sixth season in the league, which he punctuated with a handful of notable performances in the playoffs, helping lead the Nuggets to the Western Conference Finals. Grant will likely seek a longer-term deal, and while the Nuggets are expected to attempt to retain him, it's unclear how high his price may be driven up on the open market.
Grant will decline his $9.3 million player option for next season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
This should come as no surprise, as Grant will look to capitalize on a strong finish to the postseason -- he posted 26, 17 and 20 points, respectively, in the final three games of the conference finals against the Lakers. Grant should command a fairly significant raise, but it remains to be seen whether the Nuggets -- who have interest in bringing him back -- will be willing to match his price. Per Charania, Phoenix, Detroit and Dallas are among the teams expected to show interest.
Grant registered 20 points (7-18 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, an assist, a block and a steal in 46 minutes during Saturday's 117-107 Game 5 loss against the Lakers.
Grant started every game for Denver during the playoffs and while he was inconsistent at times, he finished the postseason on a strong note, reaching the 20-point mark in two of the team's final three games. Grant averaged 11.8 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 16 playoff starts.
