Jonas was a decent pickup last offseason and played the role of stretch big for the Jazz, shooting over 41% from 3. He played some good minutes off the bench, but his defensive play may have lead to Dennis Lindsey’s decision to move in another direction. At 31 years old, he was also one of the oldest players on Utah’s roster.

With Sweden losing to England in the World Cup today, it likely hasn’t been one of Jerebko’s better days. Fortunately it would appear that Jonas already has a landing spot with a new team.


Forward Jonas Jerebko plans to sign with the Golden State Warriors upon clearing waivers on Monday, league sources tell ESPN. Jerebko has a $4.2M salary that would need to be guaranteed if he's claimed.
