Jannero Pargo signs with Bobcats

Point guard Jannero Pargo has resigned with the Charlotte Bobcats after playing in 18 games for them last season.

According to NBC Sports ProBasketballTalk, the deal is worth $1.4 million for one year. Pargo signed a pair of 10-day contracts with the Bobcats in March of last season, but ended up signing on for the remainder of the NBA season. During those 18 games the 33-year-old averaged 8.4 points and 1.9 assists for the Bobcats, in just 16.2 minutes per game.

A nine-year journeyman, Pargo has averaged 6.5 points and two assists per game in his career, while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Pelicans (Hornets back then), Atlanta Hawks, Washington Wizards, and the Charlotte Bobcats, notes NBA.com.

Pargo will provide added depth for the Bobcats at point guard. He will be the third string PG, behind starter Kemba Walker and veteran backup Ramon Sessions. He will likely get some playing time off the bench, but is likely there more in case of injury. Pargo gives Charlotte the third point guard they had been hoping for.
