The bloodlines are unmistakeable for Jerami Grant, a 6-foot-8 forward out of Syracuse.
His father is Harvey Grant, who played in the NBA for the Washington Wizards. His uncle is Horace Grant, the former power forward who helped spearhead the first three-peat of NBA titles for the Chicago Bulls.
Now, Jerami Grant is looking to make the NBA as a first round pick, much like his uncle and father did.
He worked out for the Jazz on Saturday morning in a group that included Michigan State forward Adreian Payne and Tennessee forward Jarnell Stokes. While he played power forward at Syracuse, Grant is looking to be a bit more perimeter based in the NBA, although he stresses that he's position-less.
