A source in contact with Detroit confirmed the Pistons offered impending free agent power forward Jonas Jerebko to the Heat for Cole. But as MLLive.com reported, Detroit rejected Miami’s demand that the Pistons also take Danny Granger, who’s due $2.2 million next season. Miami Herald

Jonas Jerebko, who is in the final year of a contract that pays him $4.5 million annually, was the trade piece offered for Cole. As valuable as Jerebko has been in something of a renaissance season for him, his impending unrestricted free agency and moderate salary makes him a fit for any manner of trades before the deadline. The longest-tenured Piston, in his sixth season with the team, said he doesn't concern himself with trade possibilities. "I'm comfortable where I am right now," he said. "I've been playing well and I'm ready when my name is called, and that's really all I can do. All the other stuff, there's nothing I can control." Booth Newspapers

Despite previous success playing overseas, Jerebko is adamant he has no plans to play internationally and fully intends to remain in the NBA after the free agency dust settles. “No I’m in the NBA,” Jerebko told Basketball Insiders. “That’s it. I’m not even considering going overseas right now. The NBA is where I want to be. I want to stay in this league. “But right now I’m 100 percent concentrating on Detroit and our season here, trying to make the best out of this situation. The summer is the summer and I’ll evaluate [free agency] when it comes, you know.” Basketball Insiders

“Every year in the league has been up and down for me,” Jerebko readily admits. “But I’m trying to approach it the same way. I’m just trying to work hard and give it 100 percent every time I have a chance to get on the court. Now, it’s starting to pay off. “The NBA is a business, so when your name is called you have to be ready. That’s really how it is. You have to stay professional at all times, even when you’ve been through lows, been through the ups and everything. You just always have to be the same person everyday you come to work.” Basketball Insiders

The Pistons have veterans who can offer spot help to a contender (Augustin, Caron Butler, even Jennings in the right situation). They have bigs they either might want to move, or who have no contractual obligations after this season, or both (Monroe, Smith, Joel Anthony, Jonas Jerebko). They have expiring contracts (Anthony, Jerebko, Monroe, Singler, Gigi Datome). Booth Newspapers

If Jerebko keeps playing like he is now, he very well may want to consider staying. He is a range-shooting power forward who runs the floor and screens and moves the ball well, which checks a lot of Van Gundy's boxes, as well as several traits the Pistons lack otherwise. Jerebko's resurgence as a rotation force is one of the good stories in a bad start. Keeping him might be an option if it suits both parties. Booth Newspapers

Van Gundy said Martin is feeling better and Meeks can now begin some more aggressive conditioning work. Even Gigi Datome is in the mix, he said. And he blamed himself for not getting Jonas Jerebko--a 3-point threat from the power forward position--in Saturday'’s game while playing Josh Smith 44 minutes. "“I didn’'t find minutes for him and I think that was a mistake,"” he said. "“As I told these guys today, we are truly in this together. They'’ve got to get better at some things, but it'’s not like I’m laying it all on them. There are some things where I'’ve got to get better and one of them is, at some point here in the near future, I'’ve got to do a better job with our rotation and who we’re going to play.”" NBA.com

Detroit Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko told a Swedish newspaper he would pick up the $4.5 million player option and remain with the Pistons for the final year of his contract. “I feel like I can do much better than what I got the opportunity to show this past season,” Jerebko told Borås Tidning. “I know I can do it better than I showed last season. I expect the next will be much better.” Detroit Free Press

Jerebko experienced two largely disappointing seasons under Frank after starting 73 games as a rookie. Yet with the season almost over, the Pistons (27-47) are going to miss the playoffs for the fifth straight year and Jerebko is pondering his future as he has a player option for the final year of his contract. "I don't know," Jerebko said Tuesday. "Eight more games. Eight more games." Booth Newspapers

Sweden will be without Detroit Pistons’ Jonas Jerebko for this summer’s Eurobasket Qualifiers as he as chosen to concentrate on the next NBA season instead. The national team’s cause is not helped with the news that Charlotte Bobcats forward Jeffery Taylor is also unlikely to feature due to an Achilles injury that he suffered against Jerebko’s Pistons just before Christmas.

But Beasley, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and team officials said the wound above Beasley's right eye was the result of an inadvertent blow he took from Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko as he attempted to block a shot in the third quarter, not from a self-inflicted punch. "I watched the video, and it does look like I knocked the mess out of myself," Beasley said before Friday's preseason game against the Charlotte Bobcats at the Sprint Center. "I had everybody in the world calling me and asking, 'Why you so crazy?'" ESPN.com
