Brian Roberts hovered between No. 2 and No. 3 point guard in New Orleans, but he’s in line to be Kemba Walker’s primary backup in Charlotte.

When the Hornets signed Roberts, there was a chance they’d add another backup point guard and bump Roberts down the bench. But Charlotte’s latest signing – Jannero Pargo – makes Roberts the clear front-runner for No. 2 point guard.

Pargo’s agency confirmed the signing:

Shams Charania of RealGM:

I’m guessing Pargo will receive the minimum salary, $1,448,490 – $533,247 of which would be paid by the NBA.Pargo, 34, probably doesn’t have much left in the tank. But he averaged career highs in points (20.2), assists (7.7) and steals (2.1) per 36 minutes with Charlotte last season. Though that was in a career-low 242 minutes, the fit warrants him returning. He might have just figured out how to play well in Steve Clifford’s system.

      Haha true. I live in Charlotte and can’t even muster any enthusiasm for this story.

    Not gonna lie, I am still getting New Orleans mixed up every time I read “Hornets”. Gonna take a season before I remember that, yes, the Charlotte Hornets are back!
