Charlotte has re-signed Jannero Pargo to return as their third point guard, according to a report from Rick Bonnell at The Charlotte Observer. The deal is for one year at $1.4 million, the veteran’s minimum.
Picked up after Ramon Sessions went down with an injury in early March, Pargo played well in limited time last year. He brought some much-needed shooting and scoring to a second-unit that was weak on both, hitting 38.2 percent of his three-pointers and recording 8.4 points in 16 minutes per game. His accuracy will probably dip over the course of a full season, but he’s still a career 35.2 percent shooter from three, better than every Bobcat in 2012-13 except for Ben Gordon. With Sessions back from his knee injury, however, Pargo will probably be pushed to the end of the bench.
Bonnell also reported that Charlotte has offered forward Anthony Tolliver a one-year contract. Tolliver is primarily a shooter, too: 49.1 percent of his total field goal attempts over the past three seasons have been three-pointers. Unfortunately, he’s not that great at it. Tolliver peaked in 2010-11, shooting 41 percent on three attempts a game, but he’s only hit 32.5 percent on threes for his career. He would bring some flexibility, though, since he can play both forward spots for stretches. He’s still “weighing his options,” according to Bonnell, but he’d be a decent addition as a 14th man.
