Jerebko averaged 3.8 points last year in a limited role for the Boston Celtics. Because Boston was so deep at both forward positions, it was difficult for Jerebko to ever cement his place in the rotation. Utah lost two forwards that were in their rotation last year in Gordon Hayward and Trey Lyles. Expect Jerebko to see an uptick in minutes and overall production this year.
Although the Jazz have lost Shelvin Mack, Lyles, and Hayward — they still have hope to be competitive in the West with the additions of Thabo Sefolosha, Jerebko, and the young rookie Donovan Mitchell who is turning heads in the NBA Summer League.
