Notice that this is not Jannero Pargo, the somewhat, sorta decent backup point guard. This is Jeremy Pargo, the 2nd year player out of Gonzaga. His stats with the Grizzlies were some what underwhelming last season. He's also 26 years old. I didn't think D.J.

That means they will now have 3 second rounders in 2014 (their own, Orlando's, and Memphis').
