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.
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.
