Grant Alexander Jerrett (born July 8, 1993)[1] is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played college basketball for the University of Arizona.

High school career[edit]

Jerrett attended Lutheran High School in La Verne, California. As a junior in 2010–11, he averaged 18.0 points, 10.1 rebounds and 3.4 blocked shots per game for coach Eric Cooper Sr. as he led Lutheran to the 2011 California Division 3 state championship game, where he posted 16 points and 10 rebounds. He was also named an all-CIF Southern Section Division 3AA performer in 2010–11.[2]

On November 14, 2011, Jerrett signed a National Letter of Intent to play college basketball for the University of Arizona.[3]

As a senior in 2011–12, Jerrett averaged 22.3 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.4 blocked shots in leading the Trojans to a 25-8 record. He was subsequently named a 2012 Parade All-American and the Gatorade California player of the year. He also participated in the 2012 McDonald's All-American Boys Game and Jordan Brand Classic.[2]

Considered a five-star recruit by ESPN.com, Jerrett was listed as the No. 2 power forward and the No. 9 player in the nation in 2012.[4]

College career[edit]

In his one season at Arizona playing for coach Sean Miller, Jerrett averaged 5.2 points and 3.6 rebounds in 34 games, including two starts. He recorded season highs of 15 points against Oral Roberts and 10 rebounds against UCLA. Following the 2012–13 season, he announced his intentions to leave Arizona and either declare for the NBA draft or join another school.[5] On April 18, 2013, he declared for the NBA draft, foregoing his final three years of college eligibility.[6]

Professional career[edit]

Oklahoma City Thunder[edit]

Jerrett was selected 40th overall by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2013 NBA draft.[7] His draft rights were later traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder for cash considerations on draft night.[8] In July 2013, he joined the Thunder for the 2013 NBA Summer League.

On November 1, 2013, Jerrett was selected with the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Development League Draft by the Tulsa 66ers, the Thunder's D-League affiliate team.[9] On April 7, 2014, he signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the rest of the 2013–14 season.[10]

On July 16, 2014, Jerrett re-signed with the Thunder to a multi-year deal.[11][12] During his sophomore season with the Thunder, he had multiple assignments with the Oklahoma City Blue of the NBA Development League.[13]

On November 28, 2014, Jerrett made his long-awaited NBA debut in the Thunder's 105-78 win over the New York Knicks. In just under 9 minutes of action, he recorded 3 points, 1 rebound and 1 assist.[14]
