The Golden State Warriors are expected to let Jeremy Pargo finish the season on the NBA roster, after his 10-day contract expired on Feb. 17.
The expectation is that Pargo will get another 10-day contract in the near future.
Pargo, who turns 34 next month, hadn’t played in the NBA since 2013, but has played pretty well in his three games coming off the bench for the Warriors.
He’s averaged 8.3 points and 2.7 assists per game, while shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from three-point.
Head coach Steve Kerr has been impressed by the veteran guard.
“You watch him play, and he fits,” said Kerr. “He’s an NBA player. It’s good to see him out there, and I’m glad we’re able to give him this opportunity because he’s earned it.”
Pargo intends to continue playing professionally for several more years, but he doesn’t expect this season to be a springboard to other NBA opportunities, per Connor Letourneau of The San Francisco Chronicle.
Pargo says he’s just trying to “enjoy the moment.”
“The biggest thing for me is that guys like Jordan (Poole) and Ky (Bowman), they really listen to what I have to say,” said Pargo, who has played a total of just 86 NBA games. “They don’t go, ‘Oh, you’re not this or that.’ They listen, and that means a lot.”
