Nuggets acquire Grant from Thunder for first-round pick

Thunder forward Jeramie Grant is reportedly on his way to the Nuggets via a trade.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are trading forward Jeram Grant to the Denver Nuggets for a 2020 first-round draft pick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

As Wojnarowski pointed out, the pick is the Thunder’s sixth first-rounder acquired in the past three days. The rest came in trade of Paul George to the Los Angeles Clippers over the weekend.

Grant is 6-foot-8 and averaged 13.6 points and 5.2 rebounds in 80 games with the Thunder this past season. He is joining a Nuggets team that finished with the second-best record in the West last season and advanced to the conference semifinals.

The Thunder will save $39 million in salary and luxury tax, Wojnarowski reported.

After dealing George, speculation has persisted that the Thunder may be contemplating the idea of All-Star guard Russell Westbrook.
