Sources: Barbosa Open to Joining Cavs
Among those types: Leandro Barbosa, a 29-year old combo guard entering his 10th NBA season. Last year, he averaged 12.2 points in 66 combined games with Indiana and Toronto.
Still, Barbosa has drawn little interest in free agency, with no team having made a serious run at his services. Most haven’t even given him a second thought. So Barbosa knows that at this point, a short-term contract most likely awaits.
That could make him a nice find for a team like the Cavs, who wouldn’t mind finding some help in reserve – provided they’re able to preserve their assets and cap space.
And according to several sources close to Barbosa, he’d be more than willing to talk with the Cavs about a potential role. Those sources could not say, however, if the interest was mutual.
