5. Jerami Grant
Budding star and fashion icon Jerami Grant may not be with the Trail Blazers next season. Although the Blazers have shown interest in retaining Grant by offering a max contract, he is on an expiring deal. If the Blazers are not able to agree with Grant on a new deal, he may choose to sign with another team in free agency.
Grant may not believe that the Blazers have a realistic chance of contending for a championship soon. If he views his current situation as a potential roadblock to achieving his goals as a player, he may choose to seek out other options that he feels are more aligned with his objectives.
Ultimately, Grant’s future with the Blazers may hinge on the team’s ability to demonstrate that they are committed to building a winning culture and have a clear path to contention. If he feels confident in the Blazers’ direction, he may choose to stay with the team, but if not, he may seek out other opportunities.
