After news that Tayshaun Prince agreed to remain with the Detroit Pistons on a four-year, $27 million deal, Larry Lage is reporting on Twitter that the team will also bring back Jonas Jerebko on a four-year deal. Jerebko's deal is reportedly for $16 million over the length of the deal. He was a restricted free agent coming into this offseason, and missed all of last season with an Achilles tendon tear, sustained in the preseason opener.
Detroit is banking on him being 100% recovered to hopefully build on what was a strong 2009, when he averaged 9.3 points and six rebounds in each game, while starting 73 of them. Jerebko was a rookie that year, after being drafted by Detroit in the second round. There's been plenty of reports stating that Jerebko looks good during workouts, being spotted at both the Pistons' practice facility on Wednesday and last week, at Attack Athletics.
