Seems like a terrible fit. Pargo is pretty shot happy, and that doesn't really fly with Popovich.

I want him out of New Orleans though. Sure, he can shoot a team into a game, but he's just as likely to shoot them right out of it.

Pargo, to me, seems like a guy who doesn't know his limits. And if he's cold, that doesnt bother him. He'll keep firing.

For his career, he attempts a field goal every 2.4 minutes and shoots 39%. Chris Paul, by comparison, attempts one every 2.6 minutes and shoots 46%. The difference? Paul has been a starter in every NBA game he's played. Pargo has started 13 games in his career.

Why the hell would the backup point guard be shooting more often than the best point guard in the league? Especially considering the other options on that team.

Also, kind of ironic the Spurs are going after him considering how totally horseshit he was against them in the playoffs.
