It's been painfully slow around here so how about another trade rumor crumb. This one isn't so much a rumor as an acknowledgement of reality -- If I was an NBA organization I would be trying to pry Jonas Jerebko from the Detroit Pistons for pennies on the dollar because he doesn't seem like he has much of a future here. Or, in the words of Kevin Pelton at ESPN Insider, Jerebko is a great "buy-low" candidate. Jonas Jerebko, Detroit Pistons Like Blair, Jerebko has been the odd man out of the Pistons' frontcourt rotation with Charlie Villanueva playing well. He saw just six minutes of action during a span of more than two months before the Tayshaun Prince trade created a spot for him. Jerebko is still playing out of position at small forward -- Detroit has been more effective with him at power forward throughout his career -- and behind rookie Kyle Singler on the depth chart. A team in need of a face-up 4 (like, say, the Los Angeles Lakers) ought to inquire about whether Jerebko could be had for expiring contracts and future draft picks. Jerebko is 25 and has a solid track record as a rotation player, and his poor shooting thus far looks like little more than a fluke.
