NEW YORK — Former Syracuse forward Jerami Grant was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers with the 39th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
Grant will be reunited with Syracuse teammate Michael Carter-Williams, who was named NBA Rookie of the Year with Philadelphia in the 2013-14 season.
Grant started 20-of-32 games for Syracuse in his sophomore season and averaged 12.1 points and a team-high 6.8 rebounds per game. He posted seven double-doubles, and was named to the EA Sports Maui Invitational All-Tournament team after helping SU capture the title.
Grant’s best game of the season came in an overtime win over Duke in February. Grant netted a career-high 24 points and added 12 rebounds as Syracuse won, 91-89.
Grant was named an All-ACC Honorable Mention.
