Pistons to Re-Sign Jonas Jerebko at 4 Years, $16 Million

After locking up Tayshaun Prince, Pistons GM Joe Dumars agreed to terms with forward Jonas Jerebko. From the Detroit Free Press: “With training camp expected to open Friday and only eight players under contract, Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars had some work to do. So he rolled up his sleeves and free-agent forwards Tayshaun Prince and Jonas Jerebko agreed to return to the Pistons today, according a source with personal knowledge of the situation. It didn’t stop there. Negotiations were ongoing with restricted free-agent point guard Rodney Stuckey. Big man Ben Wallace underwent a physical, which means he’s ready to return as well. But while Pistons fans were content with Jerebko, a restricted free agent, agreeing to a four-year, $16-million deal, some didn’t seem happy with Prince’s four-year, $27-million deal — at least not in reactions on Twitter.”

    Weirdest thing about this? Kevin Durant tweeted about it saying he was happy for his “boy.”
    I swear, KD is friends with everyone.

    @ T-Ray – What’s wrong with this signing?

  • T-Ray

    @Wayno I really wouldn’t have a problem with this signing if they hadn’t just signed Prince to a longer contract. I like Jonas don’t get me wrong but the Pistons have too many players that play the same position.
