    Default thoughts on Barbosa

    I know people have been talking about how we need a shooting guard that can hit the three. I had the random thought about Leandro Barbosa. Apparently he's under contract this coming season and is a RFA the next [according to hoopshype.com]. I was wondering what people thought about him in general. I think if we could get him as a starting SG, he'd be a good fit. He's quick, athletic, and can hit the three [apparently ranked 3rd in 3pt%]. [[The Suns don't have much cap space flexibility.]]

    I would love Barbosa on our team, sounds funny but I much rather have him then Peja.

    I love him. So does Phoenix.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I like Barbosa but he's a bit small for a 2, but not a good enough distributor for a 1. His size wouldn't be a factor in a running offense though.

    I'd take him as a replacement for Tinsley, actually, but I don't see Phoenix letting him go.

    A year ago maybe Barbosa was available, but not now. The reason why there have been rumors about the Suns trading marion is so they can have the money to re-sign Barbosa and Diaw.

    Yeah they are likely to sign Barbosa to an extension.

    But what if they can't trade Marion? Rumors were that he would be traded on draft day, possiably to the Bulls or Sonics, but nothing happened. So if the Suns get stuck with Marion will they bite the bullet and sign Barbosa and Diaw to extensions? Or will they look to trade Barbosa?

    I thought the rumor was they wanted to trade Barbosa. He isn't good at the 1, even though he is small for a 2 he's very good at the position. I wish we could get him but I doubt we will .

    No way do they want to trade Barbosa, go to any Suns forum and just ask. They will bite your head off
