Hawks give Jannero Pargo to 2nd 10-day contract

Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE

The Atlanta Hawks announced on Saturday that they had signed guard Jannero Pargo to a second 10-day contract.

As was expected, the Hawks re-signed Jannero Pargo to a 10-day contract for the second time this season. At the end of 10 days, Atlanta will either have to sign Pargo for the remainder of the season or let him go.

Pargo has appeared in five games this season with the Hawks and is averaging 5.2 points on 40 percent shooting. He burst onto the scene in his debut with the team scoring 16 points in a win over Minnesota. Pargo spent the entire 2011-12 season with Atlanta and his familiarity with the players and Larry Drew's system helped earn him another shot.

"We had discussions about some other guys," Drew said. "But we felt it made sense to keep him here. He's been good for us. He knows the system and we are happy to have him back."

It will be interesting to see how the Hawks play it when Pargo's deal runs out the second time. By rule the Hawks will be forced to sign him for the remainder of the season if they want to keep him. The Hawks aren't likely to go with just Jeff Teague and Devin Harris as options at the point guard as it was Lou Williams' injury that prompted Pargo's signing in the first place.
