Jonas Jerebko not risking playing overseas right now

Jonas Jerebko‘s former Italian League team, Biella, would like him to play for them, but according to Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype, Jerebko is remaining cautious after his Achilles injury:

Free agent forward Jonas Jerebko has had some discussions with Biella of Italy, but he will not return to his former team at this point, Marco Atripaldi, the club’s general manager, told HoopsHype.

“We talked with him, but he’s a little concerned about an injury and has decided to stay in the U.S. for now,” Atripaldi said.

The team will reportedly find room for Jerebko if he changes his mind, but I have to think with restricted free agency pending when the lockout ends, it’s a smart move for Jerebko to avoid playing overseas and risking an injury that could cost him in his next contract.
