Jonas Jerebko re-signed with the Boston Celtics on Friday, 10 days after free agency began. In his mind, there was never a doubt that he’d be back in green and white. “I had some offers, but my first choice was always coming back here and we worked it out and I’m happy to be back,” Jerebko said Tuesday evening in Las Vegas, where he caught the Celtics’ summer league game against Miami. “There were teams that were knocking on the door, but I just liked being in Boston and what we had going on.”

Jerebko said that Danny Ainge called him shortly after midnight when free agency began to extend a contract offer. Similar to what new Celtic Amir Johnson stated earlier this week, Jerebko loved the fact that Boston wanted him more than any other team. “They just said that they really liked what I brought to the team and they wanted me back,” he said. “Like I said, it was my first choice to come back and play for both of them, Danny and coach (Brad Stevens), and play with my teammates.”
