RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

2016-17

Grant saw extended minutes in the Sixers’ frontcourt during his second season, with injuries to Jahlil Okafor, Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid and Carl Landry all creating openings for court time. The 6-foot-8 forward used those extra opportunities to put his athleticism on full display, leading the team in blocks (1.6 per game) while averaging useful marks of 4.7 rebounds and 0.7 steals. Grant’s contributions on the offensive end left the team wanting more, however, with his lack of proficiency from three-point range (24%) and struggles with finishing near the rim serving as the best illustrations of his limitations as a scorer. The Sixers should still have room for Grant in their rotation in 2016-17 due to his rim-protecting skills and ability to guard wings and big men, but he’s in line for a significant minute reduction with No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons in line to see most of the action at power forward. Grant will need to make dramatic strides with his shooting if he hopes to eventually gain a full-time starting role in the league.

2015-16

The 39th selection in the 2014 NBA draft by the 76ers, Grant missed the entire preseason and the first 15 games of the regular season, all losses by the Sixers, because of a sprained right ankle and dehydration. He finished his rookie year averaging 6.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 block, and 0.6 steals in 21 minutes per game over 65 games. Grant transferred his offensive struggles from college and shot an abysmal 35 percent from the field and 59 percent from the foul line. After attempting just five total three-pointers in his final year at Syracuse, Grant fired 2.4 three-pointers per game at a 31-percent clip in coach Brett Brown's system, completely sinking his overall accuracy. Grant's 7-foot-3 wingspan on the perimeter offers the Sixers defensive versatility and a quality shot blocker, but his offensive game requires refinement. He lacked a general plan when driving toward the rim and struggled converting contested layups, hitting 48 percent of his shots in the restricted area. Grant showed marginal offensive improvement during the most recent summer league session, converting 48 percent of his field goals while hoisting 3.3 three-pointers per game. Ultimately, Grant may win the starting small forward role because of his defensive acumen, but that won't necessarily grant him the minutes he'd need to be a factor in most fantasy leagues.

2014-15

Jerami Grant is entering his rookie season in the NBA, having been drafted with the 39th pick this June. In his final season at Syracuse, his sophomore year, he averaged 12.1 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.6 blocks in 31 minutes per game through 32 games played. He shot 50 percent from the field on 8.4 attempts per game and 67 percent from the free-throw line on 5.6 attempts per game. Grant is only 20-years-old, and is perhaps the most raw of the 76ers' five rookies. He is 6-8 with a 7-3 wingspan and weighs 214 pounds. Grant's greatest assets are his athleticism and his willingness to hustle on both offense and defense, but his skills need refinement on both sides of the ball. He possesses an unusual ability to draw fouls, reaching the free-throw line on 26 percent of his possessions as a sophomore. Grant is a non-entity from the three-point line, where he attempted only five three-pointers last season, missing all of them. He may have difficulty making the 76ers' final 15-man roster, and if he does, he is likely to spend most of this season buried towards the bottom of the depth chart.
