Sixers Sign PG Jeremy Pargo To A 10-Day Contract
By Spike Eskin
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Sixers have signed point guard Jeremy Pargo to a 10-day contract, the team announced today. Shelvin Mack’s second 10-day contract expired, and will no longer be on the team.
Though it’s unlikely he’ll play much, Pargo’s got some game. Sixers fans saw it when he torched them for 28 points in November. Pargo did a nice job for the Cavs while Kyrie Irving was out with a wrist injury. Clearly, he’s not the second-coming of Chris Paul, but he can play. He averaged 7.8 points and 2.6 assists in 18 minutes per game during his 25 games with Cleveland this season.
The 26 year-old Pargo, who is in his second NBA season, was signed as a rookie free-agent by the Memphis Grizzlies before the 2011 season. He played for four years at Gonzaga.
The Sixers signed Mack, who played sparingly during his two 10-day deals after the team allowed Maalik Wayns second 10-day deal to expire.
