• According to the Sixers, guard-forward Jason Richardson will seek a fourth opinion regarding his left knee synovitis as early as Thursday (2/7). No decision has been made regarding surgery at this time.
• Thursday, the Sixers signed guard Jeremy Pargo to a 10-day contract. The Gonzaga alum appeared 25 games (11 starts) for the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this season, averaging 7.8 points, 2.6 assists, and 1.3 rebounds in 17.9 minutes per game before being waived on January 22 in conjunction with a Cleveland trade with the Memphis Grizzlies.
• Some may remember Pargo as the players who scored a career-high 28 points in a Cavs win over the Sixers on November 21, 2012.
