I hope he stubs his toe real bad an hour before every game, and the pain is unbearable for 3 hours, and then he's fine.... til the next game.

This works for me. Barbosa will be on an expiring contract and can be instant offense off the bench for some playoff team. That's a good asset to have that we can maybe dangle for a draft pick come the trade deadline. An extra pick in next year's draft would be good to have especially considering the apparent depth of next year's crop of players.

Truth. That's best case scenario.

Agreed. I'd rather he not get playing time over either Derozan or Bayless.

I'm fine with this.. assuming he doesn't take away DeRozan's and Bayless' minutes..

hopefully we can use him as trade bait?

I said this in the other thread, but I highly doubted that Barbosa was going to leave that money on the table to go back to Brazil. He probably was just curious to see how much they were willing to offer him.
