Jonas Jerebko Has No Desire to Play in Europe During NBA Lockout

Unlike many of his international brethren currently playing in the L, the Pistons’ Jonas Jerebko doesn’t see himself temporarily re-locating to the Euroleague during the NBA lockout. From the Detroit Free Press: “Former Piston DaJuan Summers, made an unrestricted free agent when the Pistons declined to extend a qualifying offer last week, decided to sign a two-year deal over the weekend with an Italian club. Is that a possibility for promising Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko? Doug Neustadt, who represents Jerebko, said this week that an overseas assignment was not being considered. ‘Jonas views himself as an NBA player,’ Neustadt said. ‘We are not looking to go over there. If something comes up we will look at it, but we are not actively looking. We are not going over there just to go over.’”

    I’d rather have the Jonas Brothers, or brother, they would at least bring in some money.

    plus he was injured too. Better rest up for the next season.

    Solid player, he could end up being a David Lee lite + a little more defense.

    @Wayno – You haven’t actually seen Jerebko play, have you?

    I watched pretty much all of his rookie season actually. Please enlighten me as to why you took suck objection with my statement.

    Jonas Jerebko is a golden God.

    Swedish media sees this different: http://www.expressen.se/sport/1.2492723

    Neustadt is saying there that Jonas could end up in Europe and they are looking at a few different solutions. He’s been talking to a couple of Euroleague teams and the sources to the paper says Armani Jeans Milano has the best chance of signing him.
