He can't shoot (maybe it comes back?), looked completely disinterested in playing last night against the Cavs, seems to have lost the ability to get into the paint and score.

He's solidly a 3rd star on a team, making $20 million, that is in a terrible, terrible slump.

You DID see him put up 35 points on 12-23 and 4-9 from 3 on Wednesday night, right? Last night he shot 5-12 and 2-4 from 3 which is hardly anything to be critical about in the "he can't shoot" sense. That's his last two games which doesn't come anywhere close to qualifying as a "terrible, terrible slump."



He had 1 sizzling hot game where he looked incredible - for the first half. Most of the 12 makes were 1st half.

Last night was not good because he gave up a bunch of open looks through the first 3 quarters (I couldnt take any more punishment). If a guy making $20 million passes out of open looks and will only shoot when he is wide open - that is bad. Especially if those wide open shots get him to 5-12.

Grant is shooting 40.6% on 15.5 attempts per game. You have to go back to his rookie year to get that bad again. He was on fire two games ago for the 1st half. 3 games ago he went 0-9 playing with 5 points in 39 minutes against the Nets.

His value is very low, especially if another team has to trade for him. He is not playing well.

Then you agree that it makes sense to keep him. Glad we're on the same page.

Im glad you agree he is in a terrible slump. :lol: No one will give anything for Grant that would have more value than him possibly playing like he did early last season. Thats basically the play - hope he gets it together.

I didn’t agree he was in a terrible slump at all. You agreed that if he’s worth nothing there’s no point in trading him. You were the one who said he’s in a terrible slump and worth nothing, not me.

He's more valuable to us than other teams simply because he chose to come here and every time he has a big game it gets noted that he came here to prove himself.

For all we know some dude in a similar role to what Grant had in Denver is approaching free agency and paying attention.
