It didn’t take long for Jonas Jerebko to line up a new home.
The 31-year-old forward, waived by the Utah Jazz in a salary-cap move Saturday, plans to sign a one-year contract with two-time defending NBA champion Golden State, assuming he clears waivers.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports Jerebko will become an unrestricted free agent Monday if no team claims him and guarantees his $4.2 million salary for next season.

Wojnarowski reports Jerebko will sign a contract for the veteran minimum with the Warriors.
The 31-year-old Jerebko averaged 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 15.3 minutes in 74 games (19 starts) for the Jazz last season, shooting 46.6 percent from the field and 41.4 percent from beyond the 3-point line.
The 6-foot-10, 231-pound eight-year veteran out of Sweden was the 39th overall selection by the Detroit Pistons in the 2009 NBA draft.
