However, that does a disservice to the acquisition of Jerami Grant, a versatile, 25-year-old forward that projects to fit in extremely well on both ends of the floor in Denver. After trading a 2020 protected first-round pick to acquire Grant, the Nuggets have added another dynamic piece to their bench unit and defense. “Jerami is a guy that we feel can only strengthen that identity on the defensive end of the floor,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said after a training camp practice. “Jerami’s versatility, his athleticism, his length, and I know I said it yesterday, but his ability to get off the floor quickly is remarkable. He is a rim protector. He’s a shot blocker. I think he understands, in Oklahoma City they played really good defense. So, Jerami understands what helps you win games. He understands that that’s a big part of our identity here in Denver. And he’s all in.”
