Jannero Pargo Receiving Interest From Bulls, Among Other Teams
After being waived by the Washington Wizards, Jannero Pargo has received interest from a number of teams, agent Mark Bartelstein told RealGM on Friday.
The Chicago Bulls are among the teams that have already reached out to Pargo, and the two parties plan to talk in the coming days, as his representatives will do with other interested teams.
“We’ll talk, so we’ll see,” Bartelstein said by phone.
Before Washington signed him on Oct. 1, Pargo nearly landed with his hometown Bulls. He has spent four of his nine NBA seasons in Chicago and still maintains a healthy relationship with the Bulls’ organization.
The Wizards cut Pargo on Thursday to open a roster spot for the 6-foot-7 Shaun Livingston, relieving their logjam of smaller point guards.
Pargo, 33, averaged three points and two assists in seven games for the Wizards this season. He’s a career 35 percent three-point shooter and can still provide an effective, yet streaky outside presence.
