It was Jerebko’s first free agent experience after five seasons with the Pistons. “Yeah, I was up,” Jerebko said of the clock striking midnight to begin free agency. “I got a few phone calls. It was like proof that you had a good year. I had other teams interested, but after talking to Danny [Ainge] and the way we worked stuff out, this is where I wanted to be and we worked it out. It was fun to have other teams interested but Boston was always the No. 1 landing spot that I was hoping for.”

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.”
