Cavaliers trade for Grizzlies point guard Jeremy Pargo
Cleveland has added a little more depth at point guard spot, although this is more about hoping a guy develops than big minutes now.
Cleveland has traded for Jeremy Pargo from the Memphis Grizzlies, with swingman D.J. Kennedy heading back to Cleveland.
Pargo has played one season in the NBA (don’t confuse him with his brother Jannero) and played limited minutes behind Mike Conley, and he likely would see less behind Kyrie Irving, with rookie Dion Waiters likely to get a look as the playmaker off the bench. Pargo has shown potential, however, which is why Cleveland got him, their GM told the Associated Press.
With O.J. Mayo gone the Grizzlies are willing to look at some swingmen, but don’t expect Kennedy to earn a lot of minutes. He’s going to have to really prove he belongs.
