Eight-year veteran Jonas Jerebko enjoyed his best year during his rookie season, averaging 9.3 points and 6 rebounds in Detroit.

Forward Jonas Jerebko, who was released by the Utah Jazz on Saturday, will reportedly sign with the Golden State Warriors once he clears waivers, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (via Twitter).

Forward Jonas Jerebko plans to sign with the Golden State Warriors upon clearing waivers on Monday, league sources tell ESPN. Jerebko has a $4.2M salary that would need to be guaranteed if he's claimed.

The 6-foot-10 forward shot 41 percent on three-pointers last season during his lone season in Utah.  Before his stop in Utah, the 31-year-old Swede played two-plus seasons in Boston. He was drafted in the second round of the 2009 Draft by the Detroit Pistons.

Jerebko is expected to help fortify the Warriors' bench with his shotmaking ability from the frontcourt.
