Welcome Back, Pargo. The Bulls have signed Jannero Pargo to a one-year, $2 million deal.
“I think he’ll pick up where he left off in New Orleans when he was one of the top sixth men in the league,” said his agent, Mark Bartelstein. “I think he could have done better (financially) if he waited a little bit longer, but he didn’t want to lose the opportunity with the Bulls. We just thought it was a good fit.”
I think it’s a good fit too. Pargo gives the Bulls a proven shooter/scorer off the bench, something the roster was without at the guard spot since Gordon signed with Detroit.
And it does nothing to hamper the Bulls in their quest for a big free agent after the season. However, unless a big trade happens, consider this to be the last substantial move for the Bulls in the offseason.
Now if Luol Deng can just go back to being Luol Deng, the floor can be spaced nicely. Rose can penetrate and dish to Deng and Miller for mid-range jumpers, and Hinrich, Pargo and Salmons for threes.
