Charlotte Bobcats 2013-14 Player Profile: Jannero Pargo
Jannero Pargo is one of those guys who move from team to team virtually every year of his career. He has played for seven NBA teams since going undrafted in 2002. Pargo has played with the Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans), Atlanta Hawks, Washington Wizards and now he is entering his second season in a Charlotte Bobcats uniform.
On March 14, the Bobcats signed Pargo to a 10-day contract. When those 10 days came to an end, he signed an additional 10-day contract. On April 3, he signed with the Cats for the remainder from the season. Most recently, on Aug. 9, Pargo agreed to re-sign with the Bobcats and play his first full season with the team.
Last season, Pargo played for three teams. He played a total of seven games for both the Wizards and Hawks. He then settled in Charlotte and found his place. Playing in 18 total games for the Cats last year, Pargo showed some promise in a very small role. He averaged 8.4 points a game in 16.2 minutes of action per game. That scoring total gives the Bobcats a little glimpse of a scoring option off the bench this upcoming season.
Pargo won’t see the biggest amount of action this season, but one thing he can be proud about is that he wont be switching around the league to different teams this year.. He will have a role on this Bobcats team, just not the biggest. Pargo will most likely be the third point guard for the Cats just behind backup Ramon Sessions.
If Pargo can do well in the small role he will be provided and proves he can be a solid option for this team if he is needed, then he will be staying in Charlotte and not looking for his eighth career team in 2014.
