Pargo has played in the NBA for the Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls and the New Orleans Hornets. During the playoffs in his final season with the Hornets he garnered attention by coming off the bench for star Chris Paul and keeping up the scoring as if he was with the first team. He averaged 10.3 points in 12 playoff games and hit big three-point shots in game 7 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals vs. the Spurs, causing a stir for the off-season as he would be a free agent. In the off-season Pargo was attracted to Europe to play. European teams began making offers to free agents around the league to try to attract NBA talent overseas.
