Utah Jazz waive forward Jonas Jerebko after one year with team

ESPN reports that forward Jonas Jerebko intends to sign with the Warriors on Tuesday (AEST) if he clears waivers.

Jerebko signed a two-year, $8.2 million deal with the Jazz last offseason. According to Basketball Insiders, Utah had until July 9 to guarantee the contract, worth $4.2 million, or waive him.

Jerebko, 31, would provide even more firepower to the Warriors' already deep bench, and his 3-point accuracy (41.4 percent last season) would make him a flawless fit in Golden State's offense. Jerebko averaged a little over 15 minutes per game with the Jazz in 2017-18, and is likely to be included in the Warriors' bench units that traditionally play at the beginning of the second and fourth quarters. The 31-year-old is a 36.3 percent shooter from distance for his career and hit 41.4 percent of his 3-pointers coming off the Jazz bench last season.

In 74 regular season games for the Jazz a year ago, Jerebko averaged 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
