Sixers Sign Jeremy Pargo

The Sixers have signed Jeremy Pargo to a 10-day contract, the team announced today in a press release. No corresponding move will be required, as the team had two open roster spots after deciding not to re-sign Shelvin Mack when his second 10-day deal expired.

After appearing in 44 games last season for the Grizzlies, Pargo was dealt to the Cavaliers, where he averaged 7.8 PPG in 25 contests, including 11 starts, in 2012/13. However, the 26-year-old was the odd man out when Cleveland acquired Marreese Speights, Wayne Ellington, and Josh Selby from Memphis last month, and was waived to clear room on the roster.

Since the contract guarantee deadline passed a month ago, the Sixers have employed a revolving-door approach, using 10-day contracts to bring aboard a number of guards. Prior to Mack's two 10-day deals, the team had signed Maalik Wayns to a 10-day contract.

Pargo's older brother, Jannero Pargo, is also currently on a 10-day contract, with the Hawks.
