Former Golden State Warriors forward Jonas Jerebko is reportedly headed to EuroBasket. According to a report from Donatas Urbonas, Jerebko is planning to sign a contract with Khimki Moscow Region.
Jonas Jerebko is heading to Europe after 9 NBA seasons. Jerebko is close to sign with Khimki Moscow Region, I was told.— Donatas Urbonas (@Urbodo) August 1, 2019
Just as was the case for Jerebko during the 2018-19 NBA season, he appears to be headed to a team with a large amount of talent.
Khimki gonna be so loaded. But coach Kurtinaitis told he counted Khimki will play every 3 days for 10 months so he wanted 16-17 good players on his roster.— Donatas Urbonas (@Urbodo) August 1, 2019
Jerebko played one year for the Warriors, and averaged 6.3 points and 3.9 rebounds per game, while shooting 36.7% from the three-point line. His play was often sporadic, but he had a few huge moments for the team.
A nine-year NBA vet, Jerebko has played for four teams, and has career averages of 6.2 points and 4.0 rebounds per game.
The Warriors had a massive amount of turnover in the offseason, as Jerebko is one of ten players who is not returning to Golden State. With news of him heading to Europe, nine of those ten players now have homes for next season.
Here’s a look at last year’s Warriors who are no longer on the squad, and what their current situation is:
Jordan Bell - Minnesota Timberwolves
Andrew Bogut - Sydney Kings (NBL)
Quinn Cook - Los Angeles Lakers
DeMarcus Cousins - Los Angeles Lakers
Marcus Derrickson - Atlanta Hawks (Exhibit 10 contract)
Kevin Durant - Brooklyn Nets
Andre Iguodala - Memphis Grizzlies
Jonas Jerebko - Khimki Moscow Region (EuroBasket)
Damian Jones - Atlanta Hawks
Shaun Livingston - Unsigned
