Warriors Announce Leandro Barbosa’s One-Year Deal

The deal finalized last week between the Golden State Warriors and guard Leandro Barbosa is complete. The Warriors on Monday confirmed the re-signing of the veteran combo guard. The contract is worth about $2.5 million for one year.

The 32-year-old guard is one of coach Steve Kerr’s favorites as they gelled well during their days together in Phoenix, where Kerr was the general manager. The Brazilian-born Barbosa starred in Warriors’ NBA championship triumph last season, mainly serving behind MVP Stephen Curry and All-star guard Klay Thompson. He averaged  7.1 points and 1.5 assists in 14.9 minutes. He appeared in 66 regular season games but had only one start. The 6’3” guard appeared in all 21 post-season games during Golden State’s NBA Championship run.

Before joining Golden State last summer, Barbosa also featured for Toronto, Indiana, Boston and Phoenix again in 2013-14.

In his NBA career spanning 12 years, the veteran guard has averaged 11.4 points, 2.3 assists and 2.1 rebounds in 715 games.
