Warriors' Signing Of Jannero Pargo Draws Criticism, Questions

Kelly Dwyer of Ball Don’t Lie doesn’t see how the recently-signed Jannero Pargo can help the Golden State Warriors, not with the “similarly styled” Stephen Curry and Charlie Bell already on the team. He also doesn’t understand why any NBA team continues to bank on Pargo helping.

We’re looking at a two-year contract at $2.4 million, which is very little by NBA standards, but how many times does it have to be beaten over teams’ heads that NBA squads are worse off when Pargo sees minutes? Even if it’s for only a few minutes. I don’t mean to sound so cold, there, but Pargo is just a type of player that doesn’t really help things, even if he’s just there for spot duty, or a guy to fill out the practice roster.
