2 best offseason trades Pistons can make to help Jerami Grant

Seeing Blake Griffin flourish with the Brooklyn Nets might have driven the Detroit Pistons to slap themselves silly. They already had an All-Star in the bag yet they failed (or Griffin duped them) to make things work. Lucky for them, Jerami Grant came out of his shell and decided to be a franchise player.
