The Utah Jazz are trying to find forwards or anybody that can help replace Gordon Hayward. They found one, but nowhere near the same skill set as Hayward.
The Utah Jazz are in a pickle after their franchise player Gordon Hayward agreed to sign with the Boston Celtics. The Jazz won 50 plus games but half of that had to do with Hayward’s production.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Jonas Jerebko agreed to a two-year, $8.2 million deal with Utah.

30-year-old Jerebko is a veteran that showed small signs of hope last year that he can still shoot the ball. He averaged 3.8 points on 43.5 percent shooting, 34.6 percent from the three in 15.47 minutes per game.
Jerebko’s prime is way passed him, but he can be used to help the second unit’s shooting woes. At the age of 30, there’s no telling what he can bring to the table.
