Barbosa
RIO DE JANEIRO -- Toronto Raptors guard Leandro Barbosa has signed a deal to play in his native Brazil.

Barbosa signed with Rio de Janeiro-based club Flamengo. The deal includes a clause that would allow him to return to the NBA if the lockout ends.

A statement on Flamengo's website says Barbosa signed Thursday. Details of the deal weren't released.

Barbosa averaged 13.3 points, 2.1 assists and 24.1 minutes in 58 games last season -- his first in Toronto.

He made $7.1 million last season and was second on the team in 3-point shooting.

The 28-year-old Barbosa, who's in his eighth year in the NBA, was voted 2006-07 NBA Sixth Man of the Year while with the Phoenix Suns.

Thank you lockout!

I didn't really mind him. He was one of our better players last year with the limited minutes that he received. It does however benefit the Raps with losing 7 million off the payroll, but its not like it really matters with no conclusion to the NBA lockout and his contract was going to expire next year.

One of the better Raptor players from last season when healthy (though he worked against the tank).

Regardless, if there is a season, he'll be here. I'm quite positive he won't be on our payroll longer than this season.
