The Utah Jazz have waived forward Jonas Jerebko.
Jerebko signed a 2-year, $8.2 million contract with the Jazz prior to last season. Since this move comes before his contract becomes fully guaranteed, there will be no cap hit for the Jazz. The 6'10" stretch four had a steady role but they had to make roster space for rookie Grayson Allen and they chose to waive Jerebko over Naz Mitrou-Long. Jerebko appeared in 74 games for the Jazz last year and averaged 15.4 minutes, 5.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 0.9 triples, shooting 41.4 percent from downtown. The 31 year-old should be able to catch on as a reserve elsewhere.
