It’s likely Barbosa will be back with the Suns. His 2017-18 contract is only partially guaranteed, however. Of the $4 million Barbosa is due to make, the Suns will pay him $500,000 with the remaining $3.5 million being earned if he’s on the roster July 3. “My main thing is retire as a Suns player, but you never know. This is a business, you know how it goes,” he said. “I don’t know what’s the plan that they’re going to figure out. I’ll be available, but if not, my mentality is still the same. I want to get better and I have time to do that this summer and I’m happy about that.”
Storyline: Leandro Barbosa Free Agency
The Suns play the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday from Ciudad de Mexico arena, an enormous venue with nine different levels and seating capacity of 22,300, followed by a sold-out contest against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday. The latter will be a tremendous experience for a very young basketball team. “This is very exciting,” said Suns veteran Leandro Barbosa, who hails from Brazil. “This is my second time in Mexico, and you can feel the excitement. They’re my people. I feel like I’m home here.”
