REPORT: Warriors sign Ice Cube’s BIG3 guard Jeremy Pargo

Ice Cube’s BIG3 league is full of ex-NBA players. However, it seems that one of those former players will get a shot at the big leagues once again, with Jeremy Pargo signing a 10-day contract with the Golden State Warriors.

Pargo spent 2019 with Power of the BIG3 league before signing with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA G-League.

The veteran point guard averaged 16 points per game in Ice Cube’s basketball league and will be the second-ever BIG3 player to sign an NBA contract after Xavier Silas, who signed with the Boston Celtics in 2018.

For Santa Cruz, Pargo put up 17.2 points, 5.8 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game while shooting 46.9 percent from the field and 33.1 percent from beyond the arc.

Before the G-League and BIG3, the 6-foot-2 guard enjoyed a successful collegiate career at Gonzaga and a multi-year career playing overseas.

Despite being named WCC Player of the Year in 2008, Pargo would go undrafted in the 2009 NBA Draft. After playing one season in Israel, the former Gonzaga guard was picked up by the Memphis Grizzlies.

Pargo played for Memphis, Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers over the next three seasons. In 83 career NBA games, Pargo averaged 4.7 points, 1.8 assists and 1.0 rebounds while playing 13 minutes per contest

Jeremy Pargo will provide additional guard depth to a Warriors team that just traded away star guard D’Angelo Russell. In the trade, Golden State also parted ways with shooting guard Jacob Evans and big man Omari Spellman in exchange for Andrew Wiggins.
