Jonas Jerebko Biography
Jonas Jerebko was born March 2, 1987 in Kinna, Sweden and is a Swedish professional basketball player. He is 6 ft 10 in (2.08 m) tall in shoes and he weighs 231 pounds (105 kg). He was selected in the second round of the 2009 NBA Draft by the Detroit Pistons, becoming the second Swedish-born basketball player to be selected in the NBA Draft.
He declared that he would enter the 2008 NBA Draft, but later withdrew, stating that he wanted to spend one more year in the Italian League to gain more experience before entering the NBA. Former college coach and current ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla considered Jerebko one of the top five European prospects in the 2009 NBA Draft. He was selected in the second round of the 2009 NBA Draft by the Detroit Pistons. He is the second Swedish national player to be selected in the NBA, after the Swedish-born American Miles Simon, although Joakim Noah has a Swedish mother, and Maciej Lampe and Damir Markota are naturalized Swedish citizens. In August, he signed a two-year contract with the Detroit Pistons. His career in the NBA got off to a rough-and-tumble start; in a preseason game, Jerebko was accused of punching NBA veteran Jamaal Magloire in the face. Both players were suspended one regular season game for an ensuing fight. Jerebko's hustle and determination made him a fan favorite, and the Pistons promotional department began handing out Viking helmets and bandanas to fans in "Jerebko Row" for each point scored by Jerebko
