After playing on a ten-day contract, Jeremy Pargo will have a permanent home. At least for the second half of this season. The Philadelphia 76ers plan to sign the young guard for the rest of the season to add depth to their bench.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports had the news:

Pargo was far from stellar during his ten-day contract. He shot 37.5 percent from the floor and averaged eight points. However, that might be an improvement for the struggling 76ers.
Pargo is in his third NBA season. Each year he has played for a different team. In his career, he has averaged 4.8 points per game and 1.8 assists per game. The 76ers hope he can step that up as he plays more minutes and knows he will have a contract with them.
