Cleveland has added a little more depth at point guard spot, although this is more about hoping a guy develops than big minutes now.
Pargo has played one season in the NBA (don’t confuse him with his brother Jannero) and played limited minutes behind Mike Conley, and he likely would see less behind Kyrie Irving, with rookie Dion Waiters likely to get a look as the playmaker off the bench. Pargo has shown potential, however, which is why Cleveland got him, their GM told the Associated Press.
“Our approach remains consistent as we try to bring in young talent, create future opportunity with draft picks as potential assets, and maintain flexibility,” Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant said. “Jeremy adds depth to our backcourt. He is a young, aggressive, athletic guard who we feel fits well with our style of play, both defensively and offensively.”
With O.J. Mayo gone the Grizzlies are willing to look at some swingmen, but don’t expect Kennedy to earn a lot of minutes. He’s going to have to really prove he belongs.
