NBA rumors: Warriors keeping Jeremy Pargo?

The 10-day contract comes with plenty of stakes and few guarantees. If a player lasts all 10 days, he can be released or signed for another 10. Once that second 10-day contract ends, the player can be released or signed for the rest of the season to a prorated minimum contract. Per a league source, the Warriors are likely to let Pargo finish the season. What happens after that is anyone’s guess. For salary-cap reasons, the Warriors might want to give their last couple of roster spots next season to second-round picks or undrafted rookies.

Pargo plans to play professionally deep into his 30s, but he already has started reaching out to contacts about someday following Jannero — now an assistant with the Trail Blazers — to an NBA bench. “The biggest thing for me is that guys like Jordan and Ky, they really listen to what I have to say,” said Pargo, who’s living in a team-provided hotel room near Chase Center. “They don’t go, ‘Oh, you’re not this or that.’ They listen, and that means a lot.”

Wizards would like to add a center

But Len and Lopez are gone, leaving Unseld with new arrival Montrezl Harrell, from the Lakers, and slightly-less-new arrival Gafford, who joined the Wizards from the Chicago Bulls at the trade deadline last season and made an immediate impact with his energy, athleticism and ability to slam lobs. Sheppard told The Washington Post in an interview this week that the Wizards would like to add a third center to shore up the spot with Bryant not expected back until winter, but for now, Gafford is Washington’s starter.
The Heat are among the least flexible teams in the league in terms of being able to make in-season moves. After rehauling their roster to sign Lowry and Tucker, extending Butler and signing many players to minimum contracts, they only have three players on the roster that can currently be traded. Theirtrade flexibility will open up in December and January once free agents that were signed become eligible to be traded, but they severely lack tradeable salaries. After their starters, most of whom seem very likely not to be moved, their next highest salary is Tyler Herro at $4.0 million. His salary combined with several of their minimum players will heavily limit the type of return they can get in a trade. They are also just $6.6 million below the hard cap, which is another factor that could hold them back from adding significant money to the payroll.
