Midseason additions such as Jae Crowder, Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome, along with veteran forward Brandon Bass, will be on the short list of Celtics hitting the free agent market. Ainge did not dismiss the possibility of bringing back any of them next season. "Rather than going individual by individual," Ainge said when asked about his interest in the free agents, "I would just say that we like all of them to some degree. Some of it's going to be dependent on numbers and roster spots and draft and trades and everything else. So you just can't emphatically say anything about anybody, other than I can emphatically say that we will definitely qualify Jae Crowder, which I think is pretty obvious. But other than that, the unrestricted free agents, it's uncertain. But we do like each one of them and would welcome any one of them back at the right price and in the right role." Boston Globe

Ainge was later asked about the #SignTheSwede hashtag circulating on social media in hopes that Boston will bring back Jerebko. "The Swedish Larry Bird, you mean?" cracked Ainge. "I’m ready to take Jonas out to play some golf here; he’s supposed to be a good golfer. We’ll have that talk. But I was impressed with Jonas, and I know that [coach] Brad [Stevens] liked Jonas, and his teammates respected him. He plays very hard, and he’s a versatile defender and a guy that can spread the floor. Yeah, we like what he brought to the table. I think I would sign off on the #SignTheSwede hashtag. Again, in free agency, and with our current roster, it all depends. So we have to just see how those negotiations are and how they go and what we end up with in the draft and what our needs are at the end of the day. But Jonas is someone that we’re very high on and that we like very much." ESPN.com

Jerebko, who was acquired with Datome in a midseason trade, was a valuable part of the team’s playoff push. The unrestricted free agent averaged 7.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per game with Boston. “I loved it here,” he said. “I’d love to come back. I’d definitely like to keep this going.” Boston Globe

Of the guys who will be free agents this summer, Jae Crowder and Jonas Jerebko have probably done the most to up their value in the eyes of other NBA teams, as well as the Celtics. Boston will try and keep both, but understand that some teams might be willing to pay them above-market value – something Boston isn’t likely to do. CSNNE.com

Jerebko will be a free agent after the season. It’s clear the Celtics have interest in keeping him around. “Jerebko’s somebody that we’ve tried to get before,” Ainge said. “We like shooting bigs. I love guys that know how to play and can shoot 3’s and have length. “As a spacer at the 4 position, I’ve always liked him. And that’s what he does well is spread the floor. He can shoot the 3 and he can attack close-outs. He just knows how to play.” Boston Herald
