Celtics Re-Sign Jonas Jerebko

JULY 9TH, 8:01pm: The signing is official, the team announced.

3:48pm: Year two is non-guaranteed, as Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald hears (Twitter link).

JULY 1ST, 2:49pm: The Celtics will re-sign Jonas Jerebko, reports Sam Amick of USA Today (Twitter link). It’ll be a two-year, $10MM deal, Amick hears. A source earlier today told Sean Deveney of The Sporting News that Boston was making a strong push to retain the former Piston who came over in a midseason trade (on Twitter).

Boston can use the Bill Duffy’s client’s Bird rights to make the deal official. He’ll join Amir Johnson, with whom the Celtics have also reportedly struck a deal, in the Celtics frontcourt.

    Good sign up! Excellent rotation player able to build on last year.

  2. I just don’t get this unless their really close to a good trade that will include Sullinger, Olynik, and smart for something awesome. Signing repeats of dudes that didn’t get it done on a higher level in Olynik and jerebko. What’s the difference between the two and why on earth would u want both on the same team? SMH.

  3. I’m not sure that Amir Johnson is an upgrade over Brandon Bass. And Bass made about half what Johnson will make. Lucky only one year is guaranteed. As for Jerebko, I like him. He can score and rebound, has great energy for a big, and the price is right. I’m on board with that signing.
