Piston’s Grant Selected to USA Olympic Men’s Basketball Team


DETROIT, Mich – Last offseason the Pistons took a chance in free agent Jerami Grant by paying him 60 million over 3 seasons. Well that paid off as Grant stared often for a rebuilding franchise, finishing 2nd in most improved player and now has been named to the USA Olympic men’s basketball team.

Grant was officially named to USA Basketball’s 12-member U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team on Monday, making him the first Piston to make the roster since Tayshaun Prince in 2008. Grant Hill (1996) is the only other Piston in franchise history to qualify for a team.
