Which of their own free agents should Boston Celtics keep?

BY foxsports • June 11, 2015

The Boston Celtics have several key contributors from last year's playoff team headed for free agency, and they have serious decisions to make regarding who they re-sign and who they watch play elsewhere next year.

Bleacher Report's Grant Rindner takes a look at most of them, including Brandon Bass, Luigi Datome and Jae Crowder. Here's what he had to say about Jonas Jerebko, probably the toughest call of the bunch:

"Now, you may be wondering why the C’s should keep Jerebko and not Bass, when Jerebko has a similar game to Olynyk and Sullinger, but there’s one simple reason: Jerebko can flat-out shoot. A career 34.4 percent three-point shooter, Jerebko exceeded those numbers with Boston and proved to be lethal in the pick-and-pop. He’s comfortable reacting to a closeout and putting the ball on the floor, although it does lead to some tough looks in the paint."

Jerebko is a nice stretch four off the bench. He defended every frontcourt position last year and is versatile on both ends of the floor. 

He's certainly worth keeping around, but how much he costs will ultimately be the determining factor in whether Boston hangs onto him or not.
