What’s the buzz on Twitter?
Spending power update following today’s Jerami Grant trade:
Pistons are set to generate at least $47M in cap space, can get up to $56M.
Blazers all but confirmed to operate over the cap.
Thunder still have $23.4M left in cap space that expires on June 30. pic.twitter.com/W6zoiXMTcK – 11:11 PM
Always heard Jerami Grant’s value was lower than public perception. But for Heat fans wondering why they didn’t get in on him, Detroit likely valued the cap space and the trade exception created by the move more than bringing a contract such as Duncan Robinson back. – 6:28 PM
Pistons didn’t trade anyone to get Jerami Grant. They signed him with cap space. So they turned that cap space into a 2025 first-rounder + moving up from 46 to 36 in this year’s loaded draft for a player who was gonna leave them at the end of next season anyway. – 6:18 PM
If this Jerami Grant trade to Portland is happening now (or before the league changes over), the Trail Blazers are using the C.J. McCollum trade exception to acquire Grant.
That also means the Blazers will be an over-the-cap team this coming summer.
