The exodus of borderline, 2nd tier NBA players continues … Pargo to play in Russia.
Unlike some in the blogosphere, who may have seen Jannero as a valuable 6th Man for last year’s upstart Hornets … e.g. Terrible News: Pargo Goes To Russia … this corner has a very different perspective on the two moves that Jeff Bower (GM) has made, thus far, this off-season: (i) Signing James Posey; and, (ii) Not re-signing Mr. Pargo.
With all due respect.
Jannero Pargo stinks, as a legit PG in NBA.
The Hornets are soooo much better off without him as their 6th man, it’s not funny.
James Posey [G-F] is a much more versatile/valuable basketball player … and the Hornets will be able to, either: (a) Go out and sign a far superior back-up to Chris Paul, at a more cost-friendly amount than what Pargo got to go to Europe … e.g. (ironically, former Hornet) Devin Brown comes to mind right away; or, (b) Use Mike James as their back-up PG.
Either case is a significant upgrade for the New Orleans Hornets.
Hopefully Mr. Pargo has a great time and enhances his basketball career in Russia … but, he will not be missed by his former team.
