Jonas Jerebko considering return to Celtics, Brad Stevens


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Celtics forward Jonas Jerebko said after the team's Game 4 loss to the Cavaliers that a potential return to Boston to continue playing under coach Brad Stevens will weigh heavily on the impending free agent's thought process this offseason, MassLive.com reports.

"He's been the best coach I've had in the NBA," Jerebko said. "He leads this team very well, and he's a great coach, so he definitely weighs in a lot."

Jerebko played under four coaches with the Pistons in five-plus years before being dealt to the Celtics this season. He was able to play in the postseason for the first time in his career, and though the Celtics were swept, he indicated that the playoff experience meant a big deal for the young team.

"For a lot of guys being in the playoffs for the first time, now we know during the season where we want to be at," Jerebko said. "You don't want to be outside the playoffs when the season's over, because we want to be in this next year, and we want to take it further than we did last year. It makes the season important. Sometimes, you forget that every game matters. We want to do this again. I haven't felt like this in all my years in the league. I've had my ups and downs in this league, and making the playoffs with this team really gave me some motivation, and I just want to get back and get there again."

Jerebko averaged 7.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 18.2 minutes in 29 games with the Celtics.


Celtics F Jonas Jerebko says his calf is improving


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) After being limited to just four minutes during the Game 2 loss to the Cavaliers because of a calf injury, Celtics forward Jonas Jerebko said the calf is feeling better, reports MassLive.com.

Jerebko admitted that the injury affected his play in Game 2. Game 3 will be held Friday in Boston and the Celtics are 5-point underdogs.


Celtics' F Jonas Jerebko dealing with calf injury


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/22/2015) Celtics coach Brad Stevens said that forward Jonas Jerebko played limited minutes in Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Cavaliers because he was dealing with a calf injury, per the MetroWest Daily News

However, Jerebko's injury is getting better, and Stevens suggested that he would see more playing time in a critical Game 3 on Thursday.


Stevens has reason not to change Celtics' struggling starting lineup


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/28/2015) In contention for the seventh and eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, the Celtics' starting five have been outscored this season by 11.3 points, worse than the NBA-worst Knicks, giving coach Brad Stevens thoughts of changing it up, reports MassLive.com 

"We've had that discussion almost every day," Stevens said. 

But his relucatance to change the starting five is due to the strong bench play from forward Jae Crowder and guard Isaiah Thomas, especially when they're on the floor at the same time with reserve center Kelly Olynyk and guard Jonas Jerebko

"The first six minutes of a 48-minute game are the first six minutes," Stevens said. "You want to start as well as you can, but you also want to create rotations that you like. If your second unit's really playing at a high level, then you have to factor that in - that if you mix it up, your second unit might not play at a high level."


Jonas Jerebko's double-double off bench leads Celtics


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) In his third game with the Celtics, Jonas Jerebko recorded a double-double off the bench. Acquired at the trade deadline, last week, Jerebko scored 16 and grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds to lead the Celtics to a 106-98 win over the Hornets.

The Celtics erased a 16-point Hornets lead to win their third straight. Jerebko put the Celtics on top to stay on a go-ahead layup with 5:28 remaining. 

Jerebko hit six-of-nine from the field, the only Celtic to make more than half of his shots for the game. 

''When he played for Detroit, I knew he played very hard,'' teammate Avery Bradley said. ''He makes big shots. I feel like he can really help our team out.''

The Celtics host the Warriors on Sunday in their next game. 


Celtics PF Jonas Jerebko scores season-high 20 vs. Knicks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Celtics power forward Jonas Jerebko scored a season-high 20 points on 7 of 10 shooting, including 4 of 6 shooting from three-point range, in his team's 115-94 win over the Knicks Wednesday.

Making just his second appearance since being acquired before the trade deadline, Jerebko led the team in scoring while playing just 21 minutes off the bench. He also kicked in five rebounds, two assists and one steal in the win, his team's second straight. Jerebko could quickly earn playing time with quality play as Jared Sullinger (foot) is set to miss the remainder of the season.

The Celtics will move ahead to face the Hornets at home Friday.


Celtics' Jonas Jerebko (illness) questionable but will play, he said


by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Celtics trade veteran Tayshaun Prince back to Pistons


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Tayshaun Prince will be heading back to where he started his career -- Detroit. The Celtics shipped Prince to the Pistons in exchange for Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome just moments before the trade deadline buzzer at 3 p.m. ET. The Pistons announced the deal Thursday night.

"Tayshaun Prince is certainly well known to fans in Detroit and we're pleased to welcome him back," said coach Stan Van Gundy. "He fills a position of need for us at small forward with his offensive and defensive versatility. We thank both Jonas and Gigi for their hard work and wish them well going forward."

The Pistons took Prince with the No. 23 overall pick in 2002 draft. The 34-year-old veteran spent 11 seasons with Detroit where he averaged 12.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game. He spent two-plus seasons with the Grizzlies before he was shipped to Boston in a trade in January. Prince is is averaging 7.6 points and 3.2 rebounds while shooting 44.6 percent from the field this season


Jonas Jerebko not looking to go back overseas to play next year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko is set to become a free agent during the upcoming offseason, but he is not looking to head back across the Atlantic to play in 2015.

"No I’m in the NBA,” Jerebko told Basketball Insiders. "That’s it. I’m not even considering going overseas right now. The NBA is where I want to be. I want to stay in this league."

Jerebko is averaging 5.6 points and 3.2 rebounds in 42 games this season.

"Every year in the league has been up and down for me," Jerebko said. "But I’m trying to approach it the same way. I’m just trying to work hard and give it 100 percent every time I have a chance to get on the court. Now, it’s starting to pay off."


Pistons PF Jerebko on verge of getting more minutes


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The promise of more playing time for Pistons power forward Jonas Jerebko is about to be delivered with the departure of surprise cut Josh Smith.

"We know Jonas is going to have to play more," Stan Van Gundy told MLive.com. "What we've done in the past is when there's been a tough post-up matchup we just haven't played him at the 4. Now, we're not going to have the luxury of doing that so we worked (in practice this week) on how we're going to defend and double-team and things like that with him down in the post."

Jerebko has already received some significant minutes this season. He is averaging 14 minutes and 5.6 points per game. It remains to be seen how much of an increase in playing time he will get starting Friday night when the Pistons host Indiana.


Jonas Jerebko will be part of Pistons' 10-man rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy indicated Wednesday forward Jonas Jerebko will be part of a 10-man rotation this season.

"We'll play at least nine on a nightly basis but probably 10 a lot, based on the way Jonas has played in September and in camp," Van Gundy said after Wednesday's morning practice, per the team's official website. "I've been really happy (with him). Nobody put more time in here this summer than Jonas did. Because of his play with the national team in years past, he's never really been able to devote as much time to his own development and his own game. He's gotten stronger. He's in tremendous shape.

"I think the key to Jonas -- and we talked about this early on -- is he has to get back to being the guy he was when he first came into the league, that hungry guy playing with incredible energy, trying to make his spot. What we've seen in September, he looks like a guy who is committed to being a high-energy guy."


Jonas Jerebko scores 10 points vs. Timberwolves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pistons reserves contributing little


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

 Caldwell-Pope played a bit more than Jerebko, but was hardly any more productive. He finished with just five points and two rebounds in 14 minutes, while Jerebko also added five points and a pair of rebounds in just 10 minutes.

Jerebko is averaging just 3.0 points per game for the season, while Caldwell-Pope is averaging just 6.4 as a rookie.

by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com
