Jannero Pargo signs with Hawks
Jeff Teague is expected to open the season as the Hawks' starting point guard. Pargo, who most recently played for the Chicago Bulls in the 2009-10 season, gives Atlanta another contender for a backup spot.
Pargo signed with the Bulls on March 20 but didn't appear in a game last season. He played in 63 games with Chicago in the 2009-10 season and averaged 5.5 points and 1.4 assists.
The 6-foot-1 Pargo previously played with the Bulls from 2004-06 and has also been with the Lakers, Raptors and Hornets.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
