2014 NBA Draft Results: 76ers select Jerami Grant with 39th pick

Grant will join Michael Carter-Williams as former Syracuse players in Philadelphia.

Syracuse Orange forward Jerami Grant was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers with the 39th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

He joins former teammate Michael Carter-Williams as another Orange alumnus in Philadelphia.

Grant spent two years learning under Jim Boeheim but didn't become a household name until this past season, when he tripled his scoring and doubled his minutes per game to average 12.1 points and 6.8 rebounds a game.

The 6'8, 214 pound forward played well off fellow NBA draftee Tyler Ennis and especially worked well rolling to the rim for Syracuse. Grant is an aggressive face-up forward who has a 7'2.25 wingspan that allows him to finish at the basket -- it helps that he's a player who went to the foul line often. Yet his NBA niche remains to be seen as a wing player who doesn't have many perimeter skills.

Grant lacks a jumper and will have to rely upon his athleticism to become a defensive menace and rebounder off the bat.
