The Portland Trail Blazers are expected to seriously pursue a trade with the Detroit Pistons for Jerami Grant this offseason.

The Blazers will explore trading away the New Orleans Pelicans' 2022 first round pick, which they will own if it falls between Nos. 5 and 14 in the draft. If the Pelicans reach the playoffs, their first round pick will instead be conveyed to the Charlotte Hornets. 

If the Blazers do not own that pick, their ability to trade for Grant will be far more difficult.

Grant is eligible for a four-year, $112 million extension this offseason.

Grant and Damian Lillard were teammates on Team USA last summer.
