FEBRUARY 8: Pargo has officially signed his 10-day deal with the Warriors, the club confirmed today in a press release. The Warriors have now signed five players since the deadline, getting their roster count back up to 14.
FEBRUARY 7: The Warriors‘ run of free agent contract agreements will continue with a 10-day deal for Jeremy Pargo, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports (via Twitter). Pargo is the fifth player to agree to a contract with Golden State in the last 24 hours.
Pargo will be called up from the Santa Cruz Warriors, but his résumé looks much different than a typical G-Leaguer’s. A combo guard, Pargo entered the NBA in 2011 and hasn’t appeared in a game since the 2012/13 season. Since then, he has had stops in Russia, Israel, China, Italy, and Lebanon. He also had a stint in the BIG3.
Pargo, who will turn 34 next month, appeared in 11 games for Golden State’s G League affiliate in 2017/18, then rejoined the club for the 2019/20 season. He has averaged 17.2 PPG, 5.8 APG, and 3.7 RPG with a .469/.331/.733 shooting line in 31 NBAGL games (31.1 MPG) this season.
It’s very unlikely that Pargo is part of the Warriors’ future plans, so this 10-day contract looks like a reward for his solid work in Santa Cruz. If and when he takes the court for Golden State, it will be his first NBA appearance since March 29, 2013.
The Warriors had six open roster spots after completing a series of deadline deals. They’ve since agreed to sign Pargo, Juan Toscano-Anderson, and Zach Norvell, and are promoting two-way players Ky Bowman and Marquese Chriss to their standard roster.
