Mostly, that’s just a testament to the work he put in as a rookie. He’s an extremely efficient and hard-working player. A hopefully healthy Jerebko will make the Pistons a much better product to watch this season. He might not make much difference in terms of wins and losses, but he will play hard and with passion, which will be an improvement over how several players on the team played last season.
I’m also really excited to see a Jerebko-Greg Monroe frontcourt. Should be fun to watch those two attack the glass.
Other Pistons unveiled in the rankings are: Austin Daye (217), Ben Wallace (227), Jason Maxiell (239), Brandon Knight (267), Chris Wilcox (330), Kyle Singler (446), Terrico White (472) and Vernon Macklin (498).
