   2017 NBA Manifesto

Jonas Jerebko
PF, 6’10, 231lbs, 30 years old, 7 years of experience

Injuries and an unfavourable depth chart made for a fairly mediocre season numbers wise, albeit not one without its moments. Jerebko's two full seasons in Boston have not rivalled his Detroit years, and, given the limited roster spots and the need to prioritise filling them elsewhere - plus the impending arrivals of Yabusele and Zizic - there might not be a spot for him here. Nevertheless, if the three previous years of near-40% three-point shooting are more representative of his shooting ability than the four around them, then that plus his generally heady play, and defensive effort if not results, may make him a candidate for the room MLE if the cap space route is pursued.

Player Plan: Expiring $5 million contract. A worthy backup, but retain only for room MLE or less.
