Jonas Jerebko was on the road with the Utah Jazz at a local Nike store with Jae Crowder when his wife, Johanna, called him with some cool news in early February. “Jae’s wife just hit me up and I think they’re moving in next door,” Johanna told Jonas. Jerebko then turned to Crowder to confirm it with the new Jazz member. “Jae, did you just check out a house over there?” he asked Crowder. “Yeah,” Crowder said. “That’s my neighbor’s house, you better get it,” Jerebko urged him. “Yeah, I’m going to get it,” he said.
As the first active NBA player to serve a majority ownership role of an e-sports organization, Jerebko doesn’t have time to run the day-to-day operations, but he’s certainly engaged with what his Renegades are doing. “My focus is basketball, but every time there’s a big decision or new teams or players that need to be signed, we’ve got a group text together that we talk through,” Jerebko said. “Other than that, I let my partners run the day-to-day stuff while I’m doing my thing over here.”
Storyline: eSports
While living in the mountains of Salt Lake City during the NBA season, he continues to run the organization like any other professional sports team with a strong circle of business partners such as chief operating officer Jeff Zajac, manager Chris Orfanellis and coach Aleksandar “Kassad” Trifunović. “There is everyday communication (with Jonas),” Zajac said. “Our primary focus is making sure we continue to grow and provide the best environment for our players, teams and partners who support us.”
