Hawks sign Jannero Pargo to 10-day contract

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

The Hawks, depleted by backcourt injuries, have signed veteran guard Jannero Pargo to a 10-day contract.

The Hawks have brought Jannero Pargo back to the team on a 10-day contract to fill the void in the backcourt left by the numerous injuries. With Lou Williams (torn ACL) out for the season and Devin Harris (sprained ankle) out for the next week-plus (along with Devin's propensity to be hurt) Pargo's addition will be a welcome sight for Larry Drew. Pargo played in 50 games with the Hawks last season and averaged 5.6 ppg and 1.9 apg in 13.4 mpg. Pargo will step into the back-up point guard role immediately, starting with today's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Pargo played seven games this season before being released by the Wizards, but his familiarity with the Hawks' system made him an easy choice to step in immediately. He is currently signed to a 10-day contract, but could be retained longer than that if the Hawks decide to give him another 10-day if they do not make a bigger move.
