Warriors Ink Jannero Pargo to 2-year Deal

The journeyman guard will earn a shade over $1 million per season in Golden State. From the Oakland Tribune: “The Warriors reached an agreement to sign free agent guard Jannero Pargo, his agent confirmed. Pargo — a 6-foot-1, 185-pound combo guard entering his eighth season — gets a two-year deal at the veteran minimum, which totals just over $2.4 million ($1.15 million this season, $1.27 million 2010-11). The deal will be announced next week, according to his agent, Mark Bartelstein. The Warriors basically swapped backup guards with Chicago. Golden State signed and traded C.J. Watson to the Bulls last week. Watson’s departure left the Warriors in need of a veteran backup behind starting point guard Stephen Curry. Pargo, 30, isn’t as consistent a shooter as Watson. Last season with Chicago, he shot 34.8 percent from the field (27.5 percent from 3-point range) while averaging 5.5 points in 13.2 minutes. His 1.4 assists per game were his lowest since his rookie season. But Pargo has playoff experience, going three times with Chicago and once each with Lakers and Hornets, and plays his best in an up-tempo system. And Pargo is cheaper than Watson, who signed a three-year deal for $10.2 million before the trade to Chicago.”

    Pargo is definitely the kind of player we needed.

    For what reason the warriors need someone with playoff experience!

    Pargo’s quickness should fit well in the Bay. Don Nelson is going to run some nuts small ball lineups this year.

    Hmm. I was hoping they wouldn’t sign anymore guards so that Lin would get more playing time, but who am kidding, it’s the Warriors. They’ll sign guards if they happen to walk by.

    I sometimes get the feeling that even I would get looked at twice if I happened to walk by over there…
