Hornets Keep Bowen

By  | 

The New Orleans Hornets have re-signed former Denver Nugget free agent forward Ryan Bowen, whose defense helped the team win a division title last season.

Bowen averaged 2.2 points and 1.9 rebounds in 53 games for the Hornets last season.

The Hornets also hope to bring back reserve point guard Jannero Pargo, who opted out of the final year of his contract with New Orleans in hopes of getting a raise and a longer deal.
