For the fourth time in two days, the Detroit Pistons are bringing in a new big man.
First it was a trade for Sacramento Kings center Dewayne Dedmon on Thursday. Then it was free agent deals for Denver Nuggets center Mason Plumlee and New Orleans Pelicans center Jahlil Okafor on Friday.
Now, the team is adding Denver Nuggets power forward Jerami Grant on a three-year, $60 million deal, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Deal negotiated by agent Mike Kneisley.

Grant averaged 12.0 points and 3.5 rebounds per game last season in Denver, splitting time at power forward with Paul Millsap.
Funnily enough, the Pistons had a quality big man of their own hit free agency this offseason in Christian Wood, who has reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Houston Rockets that will be executed via a sign-and-trade.
What are the Pistons doing?
All of this leaves you to wonder what the Pistons are planning for the future, and that could go in any number of directions.
As far as Dedmon goes, the Pistons are waiving and stretching him, according to Yahoo Sports’ Vincent Goodwill. The more fun speculation comes with the Grant and Plumlee deals, which happen to match up nicely with a certain Pistons player’s salary.
FYI The reported deals for Grant and Plumlee are exactly enough to do a sign-and-trade for Blake Griffin.

Whatever the Pistons’ plans are, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
