Pargo's been around, but hasn't stuck anywhere for more than two years. Unlike a D-Leaguer, what might set him apart from a younger player is his experience: Although Pargo has bounced around since entering the league undrafted in 2002, his brightest moment as a pro came in the 2008 playoffs when given an opportunity to play steady minutes. Then with the New Orleans Hornets, Pargo filled in for an injured Chris Paul and put quite a scare in the San Antonio Spurs, who needed seven games to move on from their Western Conference semi-final matchup. In that seventh game, Pargo had 18 points which included a trio of three-pointers. Prior to that, he had a 30-point game in New Orleans' first-round series against Dallas. He became a free agent that summer and had a number of NBA suitors, but eventually signed a one-year, $3.8 million deal with Moscow Dynamo. "He's definitely not afraid of the big moment, or taking the big shot," Bartelstein said. "But like I said, we're talking with some teams and hopefully we'll have something done soon for the rest of the season."
