I think he will definitely be on the table. Do I think he could be interested in Phoenix? Yes. If you can pair a player of his ability with Ayton and Booker, I think its a potentially very nice threesome. Chuck in some possible Bridges, Johnson etc as role players and I think we have the potential to be a very scary team in the future.
The biggest question is what does he cost and thats the part where I get scared. I'd personally be happy to ship a lot of draft picks and take a swing.
He doesn't want to be in Denver? I haven't heard that. A very nice threesome? We are talking about Jerami Grant right? They PF who grabs 5 boards per 36? He is a nice 3 pt shooting, pretty good defensive big, but he's just a role player.
You're not wrong on Grant. I like him but as you said he's a role player and there's absolutely a breaking point with him where it would be a bad contract.
But with Lauri he probably wants something like a max for an extension and if he doesn't take a leap that would be a bad deal too.

A guy who BWG mentions, Millsap - might be the smart play. Probably can get him on one year deal with an option. Maybe a bit above the MLE. All depends on if he wants the cash or a contender. Like you said, Grant or Markkanen - might not be getting what you pay for. Millsap - you have a good idea - very good idea!
Also, would allow plenty of cash to them still get a back up 2 guard.
