Swedish big man Jonas Jerebko was among three NBA Draft selections to sign for the Detroit Pistons on Friday.

Jerebko was ranked 35th in the draft and joins the Pistons alongside top choice Austin Daye, 15th overall, and DaJuan Summers, 31st overall. The trio put pen to paper on rookie deals with the club.

Jerebko, who played in Italy the past two years, averaged 9.0 points and 5.5 rebounds for Angelico Biella in 23 games last season.

Daye, the son of former NBA player Darren Daye, averaged 12.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocked shots in 34 games last season for Gonzaga University.

Summers averaged 11.2 points and 4.4 rebounds a game for Georgetown University, including a career-best 13.6 points last season.
