Thunder Trade Jerami Grant to Nuggets

After dealing Paul George to the Clippers, the Thunder have made another trade. Oklahoma City’s starting power foward Jerami Grant has been traded to the Denver Nuggets.

Reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Thunder will receive a 2020 first-round pick in exchange for Grant.

The trade for Grant comes as the Thunder are expected to begin a rebuilding process. Grant’s value is at its highest, coming off a career year last season, averaging 13.6 points and 5.6 rebounds.

With Grant, the Nuggets add more depth to a team looking to make a title run. The team signed Nikola Jokic and more recently Jamal Murray to extensions, and adding another solid scorer helps them stand out in a newly-aligned West.

For the Thunder, it seems like only a matter of time until another deal is made. Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams are both valuable, and will likely be moved unless OKC somehow acquires another player with their recent assets.
