Default Barbosa going home to Brazil ?

Globe & Mail sports reports Barbosa will opt out of his contract and return home to play in Brazil in a locked out season. His brother in Brazil is quoted as the source.

He may decide to go either way given the burgeoning economy in Brazil and long term endoresement potential.

Barbosa departure would reduce Toronto's salary sturture to $34MM plus rookie contracts verses last years salary at $69MM


---

$34MM would be $21M under the 'projects new hard cap' ?? ($55MM)

Pretty decent money to pick up a player or two

I have it at $35.6M if we don't qualify Wright. This would be a nice break to start the rebuild a bit sooner.

This. I was one who said that given Barbosa's wrist injury + declining speed and skill, that there's no way he'd leave 7.6M on the table and walk away since he wouldn't get that kind of annual salary anywhere else in the league. But him leaving (as you said, if true), Reggie coming off the books (hopefully not being re-signed), and guys like Ajinca, Weems, Doresy, Wright being cleared off of the roster, we're not looking too bad. The biggest things now being getting rid of Calderon and Bargnani (and I wish Kleiza but I doubt we'd be able to now) and then we can hit the reset button.

He's a great player but just doesn't have a purpose to this team. We got him 1-2 years too late.

Hoping this is true, though.

I actually like Reggie in an "Alvin Williams" sort of way.

If we can retain Reggie at a fair price I would love him here.

Problem is going to be fair price. $5MM per 2 seasons and team option? It becomes debatable.

I would think that Reggie would take that in a heart beat else he would bolt for the MLE with any team in contention. I dont see a lot of $7MM offers coming Reggies way.

As for Barbosa $7.6MM - he might make that back in 3 sponsor ship deals with Embracer Jets and Barvara beer back in Rio. I cans see his point especially if a lock out looks potentially likely.

In my opinion Reggie ends up on a contending team that needs to beef up their front line. Miami?

Good point. But that kind of team will end up signing him I think.
