The Bulls organization officially welcomed back Jannero Pargo on Friday.
The Chicago native and former Bulls guard, who played with the team for parts of four seasons, was announced as a new assistant coach with the Windy City Bulls, the Bulls' G League affiliate, joining Josh Kreibich and Julian Terrell on new head coach Charlie Henry's staff.
Pargo averaged 13.5 points per game during the 2003-04 season and averaged 10.4 points per game during the Bulls' 2005 playoff series with the Washington Wizards.
Most notably, Pargo featured prominently in Game 4 of that series, helping to erase a 10-point deficit in the game's final minute with a trio of 3-pointers. The Bulls went on to lose the game on a Gilbert Arenas buzzer-beater seconds after Pargo tied the score at 110.
“We are very excited to add Jannero and Julian to our coaching staff as well as elevate Josh to an assistant,” Henry said in the announcement. “Jannero and Julian both bring a wealth of playing experience at the collegiate, NBA, G League and international levels that will be a tremendous asset to both our player development and game-planning this season. Josh’s experience in our inaugural season and his tireless work ethic will be invaluable in the growth of our team moving forward.”
