Hornets ink Jannero Pargo to back up Chris Paul

Jannero Pargo has signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Hornets, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo.

Pargo is a passable backup. There are better guys out there — certainly better shooters — but Pargo will make a few plays and a few buckets.

If you’re thinking, “didn’t Pargo sign with Golden State a couple months ago?” the answer is almost. The two sides reached a verbal agreement, but the Warriors new ownership nixed the deal before it could be finalized.

So instead of playing on a clam chowder bay he moves to an ettouffee bay.
