NBA Draft 2014: Philadelphia 76ers Select Jerami Grant With the 39th Pick

Draft Night Forever, please.

Although Spencer Dinwiddie went right before the Sixers to the Detroit Pistons, Sam Hinkie still came away with a very high upside player in Jerami Grant with the 39th pick in the NBA Draft. He's Harvey Grant's son, he was Michael Carter-Williams' teammate at Syracuse, and his brother Jerian Grant is playing for Dave's Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Jerami slipped a bit after being projected in the high teens. He's super athletic, super versatile on both ends, and really can't shoot. Does that seem familiar? Oh it does? Cool. He'll be the perfect backup to Thaddeus Young, who still hasn't been traded.

Here's Troy Nunes on Grant.

We'll have much more, but here's a scouting video on him and the picks Sam Hinkie has left! AHHHHH.
