The Charlotte Bobcats have agreed to bring back point guard Jannero Pargo, agent Marc Bartelstein told media outlets, and Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reports it will be on a one-year deal worth $1.4 million.
Pargo has spent nine years in the NBA and played for the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, New Orleans Hornets, Atlanta Hawks and Washington Wizards. Last year, he played in 18 games for Charlotte, where he averaged 8.4 points and 1.9 assists per game.
The 33-year-old joins point guards Kemba Walker and Ramon Sessions on the Bobcats' roster that most significantly saw an upgrade at the center position. Charlotte signed Al Jefferson to a three-year, $41 million deal this offseason, and around younger, developmental talent the Bobcats are now filling in the holes at the end of the bench.
Charlotte is one of four teams that could sign reserve forward Anthony Tolliver. The Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports that the team offered Tolliver a one-year deal, but he will mull over his other options that include the Utah Jazz, Bulls and Lakers.
