Jerebko also played for the Swedish national teams (junior, youth and national) in many tournaments, including the final stage of 2013 EuroBasket.
Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We wanted to add an experienced player at 4-position, we needed one in new circumstances. Definitely, the market now has not so many offers. Jonas was thrilled to come and play for us, to get the opportunity on the high level. We have a history of relationships, I coached Jonas when he was playing for the Detroit Pistons in his first Summer League in Vegas. Many players on our team also know him well, especially Alexey [Shved] who played with Jerebko for Khimki. He was not on the pro team recently so we will need time to put him back in shape body and mind and include him into our system. Welcome, Jonas!
Jonas Jerebko, CSKA forward:
It’s an honor to join such a historic club as CSKA. I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to play basketball again and I am really excited to join the team.
