Jannero Pargo Drawing Interest From Bulls, Others

November 17 2012 at 8:39am CST By Luke Adams

Since being waived by the Wizards on Thursday, Jannero Pargo has received interest from a handful of clubs, agent Mark Bartelstein tells Shams Charania of RealGM.com. According to Charania, the Bulls are among the teams to express some interest in Pargo, and Bartelstein expects to talk to them and others in the next few days.

Because Pargo was released on Thursday, he's expected to clear waivers today. It's possible that a team simply claims his contract on waivers to avoid negotiations, but that would mean assuming the partial guarantee that was included in his Wizards deal. As such, it's more likely he becomes an unrestricted free agent, free to sign with any club.

After a solid season in Atlanta in 2011/12, Pargo was off to a poor start in Washington this year, resulting in the Wizards' decision to cut him to clear a spot for Shaun Livingston. Despite having a chance to earn playing time while John Wall was sidelined, Pargo averaged just 3.0 PPG in 14.6 MPG, shooting 25% from the floor in seven contests (all losses) for the Wizards.

Any team interested in taking a flier on the 33-year-old point guard would be hoping for a return to 2011/12 form, which saw him post a career-high 13.6 PER. His mark in this year's small sample size is 0.3.
