OAKLAND, Calif. — Free agent forward Jonas Jerebko has signed with the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors announced the deal Thursday and planned to formally introduce Jerebko on Monday.

A native of Sweden, Jerebko has played nine NBA seasons with Utah, Boston and Detroit. In 32 post-season games — four starts — for the Jazz and Celtics, he has averaged 4.0 points and 3.1 rebounds.

Golden State had already added centre DeMarcus Cousins in free agency and re-signed two-time reigning finals MVP Kevin Durant and forward/centre Kevon Looney after winning a second straight title and third in four years. Centers JaVale McGee (Lakers) and Zaza Pachulia (Pistons) have departed.
