Jonas Jerebko signed a four-year, $18 million deal with the Pistons after the lockout ended, and there’s been no indication from Pistons management that they see Jerebko as a valuable piece for the future. The Swedish forward’s father told media outlets back home that his son doesn’t like riding the pine for the Detroit Pistons, and of course, the Jerebko tried to deflect the story when asked about it by the local press.
Auburn Hills — Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko didn’t have much to say about a report coming from Swedish writers about him being unhappy in Detroit.
The Swedish National Coach, Jonte Karlsson, and Jerebko’s father, Chris, were both quoted (through translation) as being unhappy with Jerebko being relegated to the bench. “It’s no fun,” Jerebko said in the story. “I guess there’s not much more to say, than this is not something I’m used to, or that I will get used to, either. And I’m disappointed.” “I continue to do what I always do. I know that this will not be too long. I know there are teams out there that want me, but I do not really know what’s going on.” Jerebko signed a four-year, $18 million deal with the Pistons after the lockout ended, and there’s been no indication from Pistons management they don’t see Jerebko as a valuable piece for the future. … The elder Jerebko said he hopes Frank isn’t around next season. “I didn’t see the story so I don’t know what’s said,” Jonas Jerebko said in the Pistons locker room before Tuesday’s game. “Everybody has a right to their own opinion.”
