    Jerebko: Will this guy be bought out of his Euro contract and play in the NBA, or did the Stones draft him to sit in Europe for awhile. I can't remember the article, but the guys agent said his Euro contract is easy to handle implying that the Pistons implied they are signing him? Do we have to sign him to have his rights or only have to sign him when his other contracts are done?

    I think we can wait as only 1st rounders get guaranteed contracts. I think we have rights for 2 years

    He said that he'd love to play in NBA, but he wouldn't mind spending a year in Europe if it is what the team wants to do.

    An email came out today from the Pistons (deleted it, sorry) but it was Joe waxing poetic over the quality of the draft choices and saying they would all be on the team next year.

    Blah, blah, blah...

    [​IMG]Jonas Jerebko, a second-round pick of the Pistons, says that his buyout clause won't keep him from playing in Detroit this season.

    "Unlike a lot of the European players in the draft, Jonas has a very affordable buyout clause," said agent Doug Neustadt. "Getting out of that, that's not going to be a problem."

    Jerebko is expected to play with Detroit's summer league team in Las Vegas, and played for Biella in the Italian league this past season.

    "We're looking at him as a guy that could come in and play," said Scott Perry, Detroit's vice president of basketball operations. "But we'll evaluate all that once summer league comes.

    "He did a real nice job when he came in and worked out. He was very impressive, very athletic young man, could finish at the rim. We like that about him."


    Sounds like maybe he will be playing here next year.

    Joe said Jerebko, Daye, and Summers will all see time this season.

    Joe says a lot of stuff. Do you really believe everything he says?

    I thought this was pretty interesting. We already benefitted a bit from the economic situation. So, we should really look at this guy as our 2nd first round pick.

    Who knows? According to Joe over the past few years he made several picks of guys who should've been picked "much higher". Where are they?

    That's what I thought. He's reading from the same script. I'll believe it when I see it.

    He gets as much lift on the shot as Sheed nowadays. And Sheed did the same from the other side of the court. :stirthepot:

    Darko could do better than that during warmups with a cigarette dangling from his mouth.

    True, but I never claimed this kid would make us forget about Darko.
