Exit Interview: Jerami Grant’s bet on himself paid off big time

Jackpot. That must be what Troy Weaver, Dwane Casey, Jerami Grant, and Jerami Grant’s agents have been saying to themselves ever since their mutual big bet this past offseason. All sides thought that there was untapped potential in Grant’s game, which had developed slowly but surely as a second-round pick in Philly, Oklahoma City and Denver. For the Nuggets, he was the third option very capably playing the roll of catch-and-shoot floor spacer and switchable defender alongside Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray. He was playing well, he was on a successful team inching toward title contention, and the franchise was ready to pay him.
