HoopsHype Pinheiros rumors

January 5, 2014 Updates

The Suns are planning to sign former Suns favorite Leandro Barbosa to a 10-day contract to assess whether the 31-year-old guard can bolster the offense, especially in light of Eric Bledsoe being sidelined at least a week for a knee sprain. Arizona Republic

Barbosa is expected to join the Suns in Chicago, where they begin a five-game road trip on Tuesday and where Barbosa made a game-winning shot for the Suns in 2007. The 10-day contract is pending a physical. Barbosa was recently considered by the Lakers, who later signed ex-Suns point guard Kendall Marshall. Arizona Republic
