NBA Summer League Video: Watch Jeremy Pargo's Sick Drive-and-Dish

Ryan RudnanskySenior Writer IJanuary 7, 2017

This may just be summer league, but Jeremy Pargo's dazzling play on Tuesday figures to be one of the top plays of the entire NBA season.

The 26-year-old brother of Jannero Pargo had people on their feet in Las Vegas on Tuesday, when he shook two Washington Wizards defenders and flipped a no-look pass to center Mitchell Watt for the jam.

Pargo, who was signed by the Memphis Grizzlies last season, only saw about 9.5 minutes per game in 2011-12, averaging 2.9 points and 1.3 assists, but if he starts making more plays like that, I'm guessing his minutes will go up in Memphis.

Pargo ended up with 16 points and seven assists on Tuesday, although he did go 5-of-15 from the floor. It appears he's certainly making the most out of his opportunity and has already turned some heads in summer league with plays like this.

This season will be the second year of his two-year deal with the Grizzlies after having played basketball in Israel following his time at Gonzaga. He averaged 10.2 points, 4.9 assists and 1.4 steals while shooting nearly 48 percent from the field in his final season with the Bulldogs. 

Of course, it's always important to remember that summer league is not the regular season, and there have been many summer league stars throughout the years who have struggled when the games have meant something.

Nonetheless, you couldn't help but be awestruck after watching Pargo's fantastic play on Tuesday, and you wonder if he has more in store for Memphis this season.
