Detroit Pistons made their biggest splash yet in their wild NBA free agency spree, reportedly agreeing to a deal with forward Jerami Grant.

They are signing him to a massive three-year, $60 million contract, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Grant, 26, increased his value after a nice season with the conference finalist Denver Nuggets, where he averaged 12 points and 3.7 rebounds per game, shooting 38.9% from 3-point range in 71 games (24 starts).

He’s an athletic, strong, versatile defender, and has developed a passable offensive game as a complementary player, with improved 3-point shooting.

He was drafted 39th overall in 2014 by Philadelphia. This is the fourth time in his NBA career thhe has been traded.
