Jonas Jerebko agrees to two-year deal with Jazz

Jonas Jerebko agrees to two-year deal with Jazz

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday (Friday, Manila time) because the moves had not been officially announced. If that eye happens to be forward Jonas Jerebko than Boston is probably pretty happy with it. The team acquired swingman Donovan Mitchell in the first round of the NBA draft in a deal with the Denver Nuggets, who has shone in Summer League and is looking to replace Hawyard.

Last season, Sefolosha started in 42 games averaged 7.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. Jerebko was a 37.2% shooter from deep.

Sefolosha heads to Utah after three seasons with the Atlanta Hawks.

The deal is worth $10.5 million, which amounts to the largest annual salary of Sefolosha's career.

Sefolosha adds depth at small forward for the Jazz, who are still reeling from the loss of free agent forward Gordon Hayward. The Celtics played a preseason game at the same site in 2007 against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Sefolosha suffered a fractured fibula and ligament damage in his right leg, in an incident involving New York police, that caused him to miss the final few games of the 2014-15 season, including the playoffs. Jerebko was a solid role player for Stevens in his nearly three years in Boston, whether he was giving the team an energetic boost off the bench or in a spot start.
