New Orleans, LA - The New Orleans Hornets re-signed free agent guard Jannero Pargo Wednesday.
Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Pargo, 27, averaged career-highs of 9.2 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists, while being the only Hornet to appear in all 82 games last season. The Arkansas product has averaged 6.4 points, 1.5 boards and 2.0 assists per game in five NBA seasons spent with the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors and Hornets.
'We're very pleased to re-sign Jannero due to his ability to provide instant offense off the bench and how he fit in with our team,' said Hornets General Manager Jeff Bower. 'He had his best season as a pro with us last season, and we anticipate that he will continue to develop as a player under Coach (Byron) Scott.'
