Jannero Pargo is to positive energy what Tom Thibodeau is to intensity. So the Robeson High product said he never considered retiring despite getting released by both the Warriors and Hornets last offseason because his surgically repaired right knee remained balky. "I knew it was a possibility I wouldn't play this year," Pargo said. "I was just focused on getting my knee back right. If that was next year, I was fine with that. My faith, my family all helped me. They pushed me not to give up. That's what I've been doing my whole career." Chicago Tribune

Pargo, signed by the Bulls along with John Lucas III on Sunday, has fashioned an unlikely seven-year NBA career out of his shooting ability, practice habits and strong locker-room presence. This is his third stint with the Bulls, who allowed him to use their practice facility as he rehabbed. "This organization has been really good to me," said Pargo, who added his knee is at "95 percent." Chicago Tribune

Some options include bringing back Hudson, signing free agent Jannero Pargo or Patrick Beverley, or plucking from the NBA Developmental League Mustafa Shakur or Kyle Weaver. But Wall is anxious to get back on the floor and assume his undisputed position within the team. "I've got to be the leader," Wall said. "I've got to get here early, I got to be the last one to leave. I've got to speak up, talk in huddles. They are gong to hold me accountable for more things. I'm going to accept the challenge."

Marc J. Spears: Guard Jannero Pargo got 1-year vet minimum deal with Hornets, sources tell Y! Sports. Chris Paul now has backup. Twitter

Demps said Green’s arrival Thursday does not close the door on the potential return of combo guard Jannero Pargo, a free agent, to the Hornets. Pargo was once again at the Alario Center on Thursday working out with about a dozen New Orleans players, including Chris Paul, preparing for the start of training camp two-a-days Tuesday. “I talked to (Pargo) yesterday and (Thursday) morning and his agent (Mark Bartelstein), ” Demps said. “We’re still in discussion and have to see what would be the right situations. I’d still say there’s a possibility he could be on our roster. But I think the ducks have to line up.” New Orleans Times-Picayune

Despite signing three players since last Friday, New Orleans Hornets General Manager Dell Demps said they have not finalized what direction they may go toward filling their vacant backup point guard spot. But one option under consideration is bringing back guard Jannero Pargo, a free agent who played for the Hornets from 2006-08. New Orleans Times-Picayune

Pargo, who is a close friend of starting point guard Chris Paul, has been working out with Hornets' players at the Alario Center. Pargo played for the Chicago Bulls last season and averaged 5.5 points in 63 games. When the Hornets won a franchise-record 56 games in 2007-08, Pargo was the top backup off the bench, averaging 8.1 points. "Pargo is a guy that we are looking at,'' Demps said. "Pargo came to town to visit Chris. He had some workouts here and Pargo came as Chris' guest. Chris talked to us. Pargo talked to us. We're trying to figure what we are going to do with the backup point guard position and we're still in the decision-making process.'' New Orleans Times-Picayune

Back on July 27, I reported that the Warriors and Pargo had reached an agreement on a two-year deal for about $2.4 million. That was a Tuesday. The contract was expected to be signed at some point the next week. Still, no contract has been signed. Sources are now telling me discussions are ongoing, but the Warriors are still in wait-and-see mode. Reading between the lines: Pargo is on the Warriors’ radar, but other players higher on their wish list are still available, and the Warriors aren’t going to lock up Pargo until they are out or the mix for the others.

The closer we get to training camp, the more prices drop. The Warriors are hoping that someone who was out of their price range falls to a price they can afford. One source said the Warriors, who are two players shy of the maximum 15, could go into camp with a roster spot open, staying available in case someone falls in their lap. Another source said the Warriors want to add to the front line more than the backcourt. They want to see if they can somehow land a capable big man (such as Luis Amundson) at a good price.
