NBA Free Agency 2011: Jannero Pargo Signs With Atlanta Hawks, Per A Source

Hoping to solidify the point guard position, the Atlanta Hawks have signed another floor general to help lead their offense. Former Chicago Bull Jannero Pargo will be bringing his talents to the Phillips Arena.

Earlier, Earl Watson was reportedly going to sign with the Hawks to a one-year deal as Kirk Hinrich looked to be out with a shoulder injury for an extended period of time. Jeff Teague is installed as the starter for the Hawks, but Pargo and Watson should be able to provide some veteran leadership to the position.

Pargo has averaged 6.6 points/game and 2.0 assists/game in seven years in the NBA.
