Leandro Barbosa RumorsAll NBA Players
Leandro Barbosa: I can only thank the confidence and leadership from Steve Kerr and a coaching staff that is first class! You all kept us challenges based on effort, teamwork, intent, focus, flow, energy, execution and being brilliant at all of the little details.#WeAreChampionship #BeepBeep
At one point during the Warriors’ easy win over the Clippers on Sunday, Glen Davis flopped (and flopped hard) after receiving a slight bit of contact in the chin from Leandro Barbosa. The announcers laughed at the replay, because it was just so ridiculous. But perhaps an even greater embarrassment came a couple of days later, when Barbosa tweeted the clip of the flop himself.

Warriors center Andrew Bogut and guard Leandro Barbosa are expected to play Tuesday at Miami after leaving the previous game with injuries, coach Steve Kerr said. Bogut (orbital contusion) and Barbosa (knee sprain) participated in shootaround and “seemed fine,” according to Kerr.
Rusty Simmons: Leandro Barbosa told Steve Kerr he hyperextended his right knee. We’re expecting an update on center Andrew Bogut.
Guber’s email, which was sent from his phone and obtained by Yahoo Sports, came after the NBA announced in a news release earlier Monday that the league’s 30 teams will have a record 101 international players from 37 countries and territories on opening-night rosters for the upcoming season. Warriors director of media relations Raymond Ridder forwarded the league’s release in an email sent through the franchise, saying, “The following is a great example of the growth of our league. There are 101 international players on NBA opening night rosters, which represents 22% of the league. We have five  international players on our roster (33%), which includes Andrew Bogut, Leandro Barbosa, Festus Ezeli, Ognjen Kuzmic and Nemanja Nedovic. We’ve come a long way…” Guber responded to the email by writing, “I’m taking rosetta stone to learn Hungarian Serbian Australian swahili and hoodish This year. But it’s nice.”
Kerr for more than a month has spoken publicly about wanting to experiment with Andre Iguodala and Leandro Barbosa on the court together. That Iguodala has been helping run the second unit in the preseason is still surprising to some given his history in the league. “I’m pretty shocked,” Barbosa said. “I don’t think Andre has been in that position before for the many years that he’s been in the NBA. He’s doing a great job. “We have a really good chemistry so far, and hopefully we can bring that energy to the (regular-season) games.”

The Golden State Warriors have signed free agent guard Leandro Barbosa to a contract, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released.

Brazil guard Leandro Barbosa has reached an agreement to sign with the Golden State Warriors for the upcoming season, ESPN.com has learned. After Barbosa received initial interest from the Miami Heat, Golden State has secured a commitment from the 31-year-old on a one-year deal at the veteran minimum, according to NBA front-office sources.
The Heat is serious about adding another shooting guard and a big man if it can find two good ones willing to take the veteran’s minimum. After recently working out Jordan Hamilton (who signed with Toronto) and Chris Douglas-Roberts, the Heat also has inquired about Leandro Barbosa and Jordan Crawford, who both hold appeal to Miami.
Free-agent guard Leandro Barbosa, who currently is working with the Brazil national team in advance of the World Cup in hopes of showcasing his game for an NBA return, has drawn interest from the Heat. A source familiar with the situation said Barbosa is on the Heat’s radar, but is one of several veterans the Heat are considering, with no signing imminent.
Alex Kennedy: There’s mutual interest between Leandro Barbosa and the Miami Heat, according to league sources. Don’t be surprised if he signs with them.
Leandro Barbosa has had discussions with a few NBA teams about a possible free agent deal, hoping to use the upcoming FIBA World Cup to further prove his health, the 11-year veteran told RealGM. Barbosa hasn’t held visits with any team, nor is he considering a return to the Brazillian league. The 31-year-old has focused on his Team Brazil, which lost to USA Basketball in its first exhibition game. “I don’t know what owners think about the World Cup, but hopefully I do a great job over there and a team sees,” Barbosa said on Sunday. “I feel healthy and my body is feeling healthy. If I have free agency in my mind, I won’t be able to be myself on the court. Hopefully, I sign a contract and I’ll be happy.”

McDonough was now the General Manager of the Phoenix Suns. “I didn’t know that until I got the call,” Barbosa told CSNNE.com. “So when I got the call, I was surprised. I thought Boston was interested myself. But then he (McDonough) explain it to me. ‘Oh, you’re in Phoenix?’ I was happy either way, just to get the opportunity to go back to the NBA.”
Leandro Barbosa, who is recovering from a hand injury, doesn’t expect to return until the playoffs, Barbosa told Yahoo Sports.

So far, 29 10-day contracts have been signed this season, and seven were then signed to a second 10-day contract. Three players – Leandro Barbosa in Phoenix, Chris Johnson in Boston and Cartier Martin in Atlanta — have been signed for the remainder of the season after first signing on with a 10-day contract. More than ever, however, teams must be judicious in which players they sign. If a player performs so well on a 10-day contract, it might be difficult to sign him to favorable long-term deal.
“We talked a lot before he did the surgery, and actually when he opened up my knee he saw that it wasn’t just the ACL,” Barbosa said. “There was a lot more wrong there. The surgery was supposed to be 45 minutes, but it was two hours and 45 minutes. “He got it all right, and I don’t feel anything right now. I’m definitely recovered. It wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for him. “We had my physiotherapist from Brazil come up to watch the surgery, and he told me he’d never seen something like that. He was in the (operating) room with us. He saw everything that was happening, so when we went back to Brazil for the recovery, he could know everything that was going on with my knee. It was great that he brought him here for that.”
