With the Atlanta Hawks dealing with a number of injuries to their guards, the Hawks have signed veteran Jannero Pargo to a second 10-day contract.

The delay between his first 10-day contract expiring Thursday and him being offered a new contract Saturday allows him to be under contract until next Monday, when the Hawks face the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas. At that point, the Hawks cannot offer any more 10-day contracts to Pargo and must either sign Pargo for the rest of the season or look elsewhere.

Pargo, the nine year veteran point guard, was brought to Atlanta last season while the Hawks were dealing with an injured Kirk Hinrich. Pargo filled in as the backup point and played in 50 games, averaging 5.6 points, 1.9 assists and 1.5 rebounds in 13.4 minutes a game.

This season, Pargo was signed to a 10-day on January 21. During the ensuing five game stretch, he averaged 5.2 points per game on .400 shooting overall and shot .462 from the perimeter while putting up an average of 2.6 assists in 16 minutes per game.
