Pargo coming back to NBA and Kidd to grow old in Dallas

A couple quick things to mention before I get back to work…  Various news outlets are reporting that former New Orleans Hornet Jannero Pargo is in talks to join the Chicago Bulls.  Pargo was an important asset to the Hornets team that was so dominant only 2 seasons ago before leaving the NBA for a Russian squad.  Now that Russian club has run into financial trouble, sending Jannero looking elsewhere.  Some will certainly argue that adding Pargo doesn’t really mean much, and that is certainly a tenable position, but it’s nice to have a guy who can score, albeit in streaks, off the bench.

Also it’s fairly certain now that Jason Kidd will re-sign with the Mavericks.  Jason’s meeting with the Knicks seems to have paid off.  In a veritable panic, Mark Cuban  flew across the country stalking his star point guard in an attempt to convince Kidd to remain a Maverick.  Apparently in his distress Cuban offered Kidd a guaranteed 3 year deal worth over $25 million.  Is it any surprise the 36 year-old agreed?  No, of course it isn’t.

Lastly it appears the Blazers are after New York Knick David Lee.  Although Lee is a great player, almost universally underrated and unappreciated, he really does not belong with the Blazers.  The Blazers already have a YOUNG and talented front-court.  Lamarcus Aldridge is on the verge of stardom and won’t be relegated to the bench.  Free-agent Channing Frye is a perfectly suitable backup for Lamarcus, especially when Mr. Lee wants $10 million a year.  That sum is simply inordinate for a bench player.
