It was expected the Wizards were doing to look around for some depth at the point guard position with John Wall out for a couple months (let us hope it is only a couple months), but they moved faster than had been expected.
The Wizards have signed Jannero Pargo to a one-year deal, his agent told Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated. This is a one-year deal at the veteran’s minimum, and it is only partially guaranteed — meaning when Wall returns Pargo can be cut free.
Pargo has bounced around during his eight seasons in the NBA, but last year with Atlanta he played solidly, with 5.6 points and 1.9 assists per game in 13 minutes. He’s a jump shooter — he rarely takes shots at the rim, he takes mostly threes and last season hit 38 percent of those. He’s no John Wall, but he can give the Wizards a respectable 15 minutes a game until Wall returns.
