According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, the Trail Blazers are adding former NBA player Jannero Pargo to their coaching staff.

Pargo went undrafted in 2002, but after playing in the D-League and overseas, he signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Bulls in 2009. Pargo spent time with the Bulls, Hawks, Wizards, and the Bobcats over his seven-year career.

In October of 2017, Pargo was named as an assistant coach for the G-League’s Windy City Bulls.

Now at the age of 39, Pargo will get his first opportunity on an NBA coaching staff. Portland had a coaching vacancy with David Vanterpool taking an associate head-coaching job with the Minnesota Timberwolves.   

Jannero’s brother Jeremy Pargo played at Gonzaga from 2005-2009. Jeremy is currently playing for Maccabi Tel Aviv of the Israeli Premier League and EuroLeague.
