The Celtics’ big move has been signing Amir Johnson.
Now, they’re moving onto retention.
They’d probably like to bring back restricted free agent Jae Crowder. First, Jonas Jerebko.
Sam Amick of USA Today:
Jerebko played well for the Celtics after they acquired him in a midseason trade with the Pistons. He’s an energy forward with 3-point range, and Brad Stevens used him well. That’s a big reason Jerebko is getting this healthy payday.
As Boston looks to make splashier moves going forward, Stevens should be a major selling point.
For now, the Celtics should get the 28-year-old Jerebko through his prime on a reasonable deal. Then, they can take it from there.
