Default Phoenix Suns to sign Leandro Barbosa to 10-day contract

Meep, meep, “The Blur” is back.

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.

Barbosa has not played in the NBA since Feb.11, 2013, when he suffered a season-ending knee injury while playing for Boston when Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough was the assistant GM there. Barbosa was part of a later trade to Washington but the torn ACL made him just a salary-slotting part of the Jordan Crawford deal while he was at home rehabilitating in Brazil.

After going unsigned this season, Barbosa began playing for Pinheiros in Brazil to try to get his body ready for a NBA opportunity. Barbosa averaged 20.8 points, 3.1 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals in eight games while making half of his 3-pointers.

Barbosa is expected to join the Suns in Chicago, where they begin a five-game road trip 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.

I just noticed they signed him while watching the game.

Brings back memories. He was one of my favorite players.

his first 2 games really underwhelmed me. was pretty active and had like a few good things but he shot poorly and had issues rotating the ball. i think they were putting too much on him early. getting minutes in very important situations with a team he's not all familiar with.

didnt see the detroit game though.

Best thing about Barbosa was when we got rid of him the first time.. the second best thing about him will be when we get rid of him again.
