Bulls sign Jannero Pargo

 CHICAGO (AP) - Free agent guard Jannero Pargo has signed a 1-year deal with the Chicago Bulls.

Terms were not disclosed Monday.

The 6-foot-1 guard, known for his outside shooting, was also with Chicago from 2003-06. Pargo played in Russia and Greece last season. He is a 6-year NBA veteran, having also spent time with the Lakers, Raptors and Hornets.

He has averaged 6.9 points in 316 regular-season games, while shooting 36.5% from the 3-point line. In 33 playoff games, his average is 6.5 points and 36.8% on 3-pointers.

Pargo gives the Bulls backcourt depth after they lost leading scorer Ben Gordon to Detroit.
