Leandro Barbosa Signing Is Official, Will Not Play Vs. Brooklyn Tonight

 

A day after the reports that the C’s have agreed to terms with the former Pacers guard, the team made the deal offocoalhis afternoon. Here is the official team press release on the move:

The Boston Celtics announced today that they have signed free agent guard Leandro Barbosa. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Barbosa, a 6’3” guard, appeared in 64 games last season split between Toronto and Indiana, averaging 11.1 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 0.9 steals while shooting 38.2% from three-point territory. Barbosa, a member of the 2012 Brazilian Olympic basketball team, was the team’s leading scorer with 16.2 points in their six contests, eighth among all players in the 2012 Olympics. The native of Sao Paulo, Brazil was named the NBA’s 2006-07 Sixth Man of the Year when he averaged a career-best 18.1 points, 4.0 assists and shot 43.4% from three-point territory. Barbosa has appeared in 588 career games between Phoenix, Toronto and Indiana with career averages of 12.5 points and 2.4 assists while shooting 39.1% on three-pointers.

Barbosa will not be available in Brooklyn for tonight’s game due to pending visa paperwork.

In case you missed it this summer, here’s another reason to get excited about Barbosa’s offensive potential this season, in what may have been one of the more memorable plays for Brazil this summer.

    Good job from Ainge on this one.

    I've always liked Barbosa's game. Great handler, sneaky driver and fast. He has all the potential to be the kind of guy for this team, that Barrea was for the Mavs 2 years ago. He's the kind of player you'll throw in the game for small periods of time, with a single mission, to attack in every way.
    Great coaches assign their roleplayers with specific tasks and help them make the best of their time on the floor. Other than Pop, there's no one better at that than Doc. He'll get him into the right mindset and make him a contributor. (same reason Darko will be productive by the way).

    I attended the Celtics/Nets game.
    Observations:
    1. It's good to see Pierce not hobbling around like in the playoffs. KG won't be as good as last year but Pierce will be a lot better.
    2. Doc yelled at Jeff Green at length about something. Green had the expression of a fish in a fish tank during the interaction.

      I think Garnett will be fine.
