Jonas Jerebko
SELECTED BY: Pistons Round 2 (9)
SI Rank
3
Position: Country: Ht., Wt.:
6'9", 220

BIOGRAPHY: Jerebko has the tools to be a solid role player in the NBA. Since leaving the Swedish league, the 22-year-old forward has gained nearly 30 pounds, becoming a physical force that will be necessary when he's facing NBA-sized talent. Jerebko is an average offensive player (although he's good at running the floor and has 3-point range), but he's a solid rebounder who can crash the boards and give a team valuable extra possessions. On the defensive end, Jerebko has great instincts and athleticism, and he has the ability to step out in the passing lane, grab loose balls or shut down his man. Jerebko is a mature, team-first player that has shown solid progress in his second season in the Italian league. Expected to go at the end of the first round or beginning of the second, Jerebko should provide a team with solid bench production.
