Celtics’ Barbosa Denies Trade Desire
Contrary to what he was quoted as saying in a Brazilian publication, Leandro Barbosa does not want to be traded.
“It’s not true, I never said I wanted to get traded or any of that talk that you guys saw in the media,” he said. “I’m happy here and I knew it was going to be the situation I’m in. I didn’t say that [about being traded].
“It’s strange for me. I don’t know who said that. It wasn’t me. I talked to [team president] Danny [Ainge]. Danny knows what it is. I’m happy here.”
