Jerian Grant Struggling to Adjust to Triangle

Jerian Grant’s learning curve wasn’t supposed to be so steep. He was a four-year NCAA player with an uncle who served many years under Phil Jackson. But as the rookie discovered more than a quarter into the season, the triangle is not such a comforting system for a point guard accustomed to pick-and-rolls.

Heading into Friday against the Sixers, Grant played a combined three minutes in the previous three games while logging two DNPs. He had been replaced in the rotation by Sasha Vujacic, as that promising start quickly turned into an extended struggle. Vujacic and Langston Galloway had been eating up the guard reserve minutes.

“It’s tough. You have to figure out a different way to play,” Grant, who was drafted 19th overall after averaging 17 points and 6.6 assists as an All-American senior at Notre Dame, told the Daily News.
