Know The Draftee: Jerian Grant

BROOKLYN, NY - JUNE 25:  Jerian Grant, the 19th overall pick of the NBA Draft by the New York Knicks, speaks at a press conference during the 2015 NBA Draft on June 25, 2015 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The Knicks picked up two players in the first round of yesterday’s NBA draft: 87 inches of Latvian controversy, Kristaps Porzingis, and Notre Dame guard Jerian Grant. Porzingis was the headline move, but trading Tim Hardaway Jr. to Atlanta for Grant says a lot about the style and substance of the team Phil Jackson’s putting together. I broke Grant’s game down today at P&T. Long story short: he’s the complete opposite of Hardaway…in that he does things. Lots of things. He could be a good fit for where the team is headed.
