With the Portland Trail Blazers and Chauncey Billups looking to shore up their coaching staff in Portland, former Blazers assistant coaches are landing on their feet on various teams around the league.
Earlier this week it was reported that Trail Blazers associate head coach Nate Tibbetts has found a new opportunity with the Orlando Magic, joining Jamahl Mosley’s staff.
And now another former Blazers coach has reportedly found his next coaching gig.
Per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Indiana Pacers coach Rick Carlisle is set to add Jannero Pargo to his coaching staff as an assistant.
For the past two seasons, Pargo was an assistant under former Blazers coach Terry Stotts in Portland in his first opportunity on an NBA 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. He spent time with the Bulls, Hawks, Wizards, and the Bobcats over his seven-year NBA career.
In October of 2017, Pargo was named as an assistant coach for the G-League’s Windy City Bulls.
