You have mostly played in small cities throughout your career. Are you a big-city type of guy or would you rather play in smaller markets? Jonas Jerebko: For me, it doesn’t matter. Basketball is basketball, I don’t care. I just want to be part of a team that wants to win. I just want to win. HoopsHype

Who supported you the most during the recovery? Jonas Jerebko: The Pistons have been great to me. [Strength and conditioning coach] Arnie Kander took great care of me. I think I got the best treatment in the world. I worked every day I don’t know for how many hours, and I’ve been doing that for over a year, so I feel the Pistons took great care of me and Arnie Kander was the best. My family has always been very supportive… All of them have helped me get through this. HoopsHype

The NBA's owners appear prepared to follow Gary Bettman's lead and kill off an entire season for "cost certainty" via a lockout of its players. So that could mean a great number of very talented athletes will be looking for supplemental, short-term employment. To that end, we respectfully present the National Hockey League as a viable option for the jobless NBA player. Please, follow the lead of Detroit Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko, who practiced with the Detroit Red Wings this week. As you can see, skating ability is mandatory; everything else is optional. Yahoo! Sports

Here's a bit from a Jonas Jerebko blog, written by his buddy Chris: Just came back from a trip downtown at Joe Louis Arena. Me and Jonas was skating with the Redwings and it was really fun! I haven't been on skates since I don't know when, but Jonas used to play hockey back home in Sweden and I can tell you guys that he's no Bambi on the ice. Kronwall got Jonas a pair of size 15 skates and he and Jonathan Ericsson(notes) was with us on the ice Yahoo! Sports

Free agent forward Jonas Jerebko has had some discussions with Biella of Italy, but he will not return to his former team at this point, Marco Atripaldi, the club’s general manager, told HoopsHype. “We talked with him, but he’s a little concerned about an injury and has decided to stay in the U.S. for now,” Atripaldi said.

Jerebko, who averaged 9.3 ppg and 6.0 rpg in a promising rookie year with the Pistons, missed all of the 2011-12 season due to an Achilles tendon injury. “The team has been built without him, but we would have a spot for him if he decides to come because it’s Jonas,” Atripaldi said. HoopsHype

There's a team that would open the doors to the forward. It was at Biella where he played with only 20 years and where he played two seasons before jumping to the NBA and that club will probably be the one that ends signing Jerebko. Cajasol would have wanted him, even with the risk of another Achilles tendon injury, but they said no to the opt-out clause to escape to the NBA, something which Biella has no problem with.
