On February 7, the Philadelphia 76ers signed Jeremy Pargo to a ten-day contract. Previously, Pargo was with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
During his ten day contract, Pargo appeared in three games for the Sixers. He provided some depth off the bench at guard and took some pressure off of rising star and NBA All-Star Jrue Holiday.
In three games with the Sixers, Pargo appeared in 71 total minutes. Against a mediocre Charlotte Bobcats team, he helped the Sixers win with his 12 points, four rebounds and six assists. His points went downward as the games went on, with 10 against the Los Angeles Clippers, and a measly two against the Milwaukee Bucks.
However, it wasn’t just Pargo who didn’t have the best of games against the Clippers and Bucks. The Sixers headed into the All-Star Break on a two-game losing streak , and are four games out of the eighth seed and a playoff berth.
Don’t be surprised if the Sixers were to sign Pargo to a new contract. They will be missing Jason Richardson for the rest of the season due to injury, and we still don’t know when and if Andrew Bynum will heal and get into a game for the Sixers this season.
If the Sixers were to sign Pargo, it wouldn’t be for much and it would not be a very high risk contract. Pargo has brought a spark to the Sixers squad at times, and more practice and game time with the team couldn’t hurt the Sixers or team chemistry. Philadelphia doesn’t have much to lose, and there aren’t really any other options except a trade at this point.
It will be interesting to see what Philadelphia does with Pargo as his contract expires over the All-Star Weekend.
