Re: 2012 Trade Deadline deal: Raptors trade Leandro Barbosa to Pacers
First of all, his contract is expiring.
Second, this guy is great. He's a scorer, not a bad defender, decent enough passer. He can shoot and he gets to the rim. Like George Hill, a combo style player. He needed to be traded because Toronto isn't any good and he's too valuable a piece for good teams. And Indiana is way way way under the cap anyway.
AJ Price is now the 3rd guard off the bench. Maybe worth a trade from someone else.
