Jerian Grant describes Wizards homecoming as 'dream come true'

Updated: Jul 15, 2020

Washington, D.C. — The Capital City Go-Go claimed former 2015 first-round pick (technically by the Wizards in the Kelly Oubre trade) Jerian Grant in November early in their second G League season. Grant has played for the Knicks, Bulls, and Magic in his five-year career before not receiving a qualifying offer in Summer 2019. Now that Davis Bertans has opted out of the NBA restart for obvious reasons that the organization respects, Grant is being called up to the Wizards.

This season in the G League, the 27-year old averaged 16.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game while also shooting .435 from three-point range. The son of former Bullet Harvey Grant (who he beat at age 12 in their first and only matchup) as well as DeMatha high school product (where he is still working out), Jerian Grant has grown up around the Wizards organization and could not be happier to now be a member himself.

"My dad played with them, coached with them. I was always around the locker room, being a ball boy," Grant explained. "It really, really actually feels like home to me. To be able to call myself a Wizard is really a dream come true. I know the equipment guys, I know people who have been around a long time. It really just feels like home."

Priding himself as a versatile player, Grant is anxious to held the Wizards anyway he can during the NBA restart in Orlando. He won't be starstruck to possibly play with Bradley Beal because he has played with the likes of Carmelo Anthony and Jimmy Butler.

Grant also serves as an example of exactly what the Wizards want out of the Go-Go. They were able to take an NBA talent, develop it in their own building, and now have that available when needed but without taking up an NBA roster spot along the way. Now with the big league team, Grant is excited to be reunited with his former high school coach David Adkins who has been a pivotal development coach in the Wizards organization dating back to the Randy Wittman era.
