Khimki Moscow Region added size and experience to its roster by inking versatile forward Jonas Jerebko to a two-year deal, the club announced on Wednesday. Jerebko (2.08 meters, 32 years old) arrives from Golden State of the NBA.
Emiliano Carchia: OFFICIAL: Jonas Jerebko signs with Khimki Moscow
Donatas Urbonas: Jonas Jerebko is heading to Europe after 9 NBA seasons. Jerebko is close to sign with Khimki Moscow Region, I was told.
He has a one-year contract like you. You’ll have to deal with free agency again next summer. Jonas Jerebko: Well, I’m so used to it now. I’m the kind of guy that likes to stay in one place and commit to a team but I know there’s a business side of things too. I’m so used to it now that I don’t really think about it, but it would be nice to stay in one place for longer than one year, two years or whatever it might be. I’m having a great time here in the Bay Area right now and I’m just going to keep playing well, keep enjoying this and hopefully have a great year and then we’ll see what happens. But like I said, I would like to stay in one place for longer than a season.
Let’s talk about last summer when the Jazz waived you after a solid season. Jonas Jerebko: I thought I was going to be there. We made the playoffs, I think I played well so I was expecting to come back to the Jazz. But you know, this is also a business. Coach [Quin Snyder] called me and told me that there wasn’t a lot of minutes at my position. But right after I knew I was going to be waived, my agent [Bill Duffy] called me and told me that the Golden State Warriors were interested. I kinda told him, ‘We don’t really need to hear anything else’. That’s where I wanted to go. I got lucky. You must be playing good basketball when the world’s best team wants you to join them.
Mark Medina: Warriors announce the signing of Jonas Jerebko. Warriors now with 13 players under contract. Expected to re-sign Patrick McCaw soon and then leave the last roster spot open to save $$$ and keep flexibility
Mark Medina: The Warriors officially re-sign Kevin Durant. Warriors have 12 players under contract & will be at 13 when Jonas Jerebko signs. They’ll be at 14 presuming Patrick McCaw returns. Warriors likely to keep last roster spot open to save $$ and keep flexibility for next season.
Anthony Slater: It was assumed, but the expected agreement with Jonas Jerebko basically puts an end to any thoughts of a reunion with Zaza Pachulia and David West. Roster at 13. McCaw (or another guard/wing) will make 14. That’s where they plan to cap roster.

Boston would now need a series of transactions to create cap space for Gordon Hayward. The Celtics would have to pull the qualifying offer on Kelly Olynyk, renounce free agents Jonas Jerebko, James Young, Gerald Green and waive the contracts of Jordan Mickey and Demetrius Jackson (or trade).
How do you feel about becoming a free agent at the end of the season? Jonas Jerebko: I’m just excited to be a Boston Celtic right now, finishing first in the East, and being in the playoffs. Being a free agent is always interesting. I love my time in Boston and I’m not closing any doors. I’m just excited for the summer and see what happens. I’m taking it day by day now with the playoffs, trying not to think about what’s going to happen in the summer. I’m getting in the gym early and staying ready for when my number is called.
Your name was written under the ‘Hybrid Free Agency’ category on the now-famous Orlando Magic board. Did you see it? Jonas Jerebko: My uncle and my dad follow that stuff and they sent it to me. To be honest, I’ve played in the NBA for a while and I’m pretty sure all the teams have those boards. Yes, my name was there but I’m hoping my name is on a few other lists too.
Because of this free agent uncertainty, sources close to Johnson and Jerebko are saying they’ve been advised that the decision on whether to pick up one or both of their options could well come down to the final hours. Johnson is slated to make $12 million next season, and Jerebko is down for $5 million, but the Celts can opt out of those deals by serving notice by midnight Sunday (July 3rd).
He declined to comment on impending free agents Evan Turner (unrestricted), Jared Sullinger (restricted) and Tyler Zeller (restricted) — beyond saying that Turner had a “good year” — and said “nothing has been decided” on the contract options for Jonas Jerebko and Amir Johnson.

The Bulls have wandered in the wilderness for three seasons since the Butler trade. They’re finally starting to emerge. Even before his All-Star selection, LaVine’s ascension this season has placed him, in the perception of three rival executives that NBC Sports Chicago talked to, not actively in the trade market.
During ESPN’s “The Jump,” reporter Marc Spears says NBA General Managers, executives and scouts are saying Southwest Division teams will be active around the trade deadline, including the San Antonio Spurs. And according to Spears, the Spurs are shopping LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan. “Another name is San Antonio, is kind of surprising” Spears said. “LaMarcus Aldridge’s name has been bandied about. Also, a little bit I’m hearing is DeMar DeRozan.”
“There was a story about how he is pushing to go to Philadelphia, that’s just not true.” Kyle Lowry’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, tells @TermineRadio & @Jumpshot8 the Raptors point guard isn’t go anywhere.
“A lot of the rumors and things that are written about, are just … that’s just what they are is just rumors and they’re designed for people to click on the article. …That happened today with Kyle Lowry. There was a story today that he’s pushing to go to Philadelphia. That’s just not true. That story came out today, and so I had to get on the phone with [Raptors president] Masai [Ujiri] and [general manager] Bobby [Webster] and make sure they knew that certainly wasn’t coming from us.”
In an interview with NBC Sports Boston, he was asked if he was disappointed by the Celtics’ current position considering where they were at four years ago when they’d signed Gordon Hayward, traded for Kyrie Irving and drafted both Tatum and Brown in consecutive seasons. His answer was yes. And he also believes that Irving leaving was a setback for the team that had a “domino effect” that still hits the team today. “Well I would say I am disappointed, but I would also say that in those four years we’ve been to the conference finals 3 times. So it hasn’t been a wasteland, it’s been to the final four…But you know, we thought Kyrie would stay forever and lead us all the way. He’s on maybe the best team in the league right now and so, that’s that. And that change touched off a lot of stuff and we weren’t able to maybe recruit free agents in the same way and, you know, there’s a bit of a domino effect. But it is what it is.”
Irving said Thursday night, “I want that to be something in history that is changed forever, that our generation was part of that change. And if that means that I have to lead that forward and get the conversation going, then great.” In 2017, West said on ESPN’s The Jump that while it is “flattering” to be depicted as the symbol of the league, “I think if I were the NBA, I would be embarrassed about it. I don’t like to do anything to call attention to myself. If they would want to change it, I wish they would. In many ways, I wish they would.”
Irving said that he understands that his proposition doesn’t appeal to everyone. “I know that it probably was met with some people that love it — that love the idea — and some people that don’t love it,” Irving said. “But, my thing is paying homage to the example that has been set by that man.”
