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
