    Default Barbosa

    Colangelo also noted that Leandro Barbosa, who battled season-long wrist issues, will not require surgery.

    Colangelo referred to Barbosa as a “keeper,’’ a low-maintenance veteran who provided the Raptors with much-needed scoring and backcourt versatility coming off the bench.

    Barbosa has a $7.4 million option he can exercise for next season, a decision that has yet to be made.

    With so much unknown given the uncertainty of a labour deal, Colangelo admitted he’d entertain the option of discussing an extension with Barbosa.

    What are your thoughts on Barbosa?

    1) Keep him for next year and let him expire.

    2) Extend him at a lower annual salary.

    3) He opts in and then is traded.

    4) I hope he opts out and we have more cap room.

    I was disapointed that we could not move him before the trade deadline. Maybe we can use him to move up in the draft.

    Word out of Minesota is that they are looking for vetran help willing to trade to attain it. Maybe we can talk Barbosa and Andrea with them, maybe Jose. Maybe a nice set of moose antlers for Bryan's office?

    If we can get something good for him def trade him. But I wouldn't be upset if he played another year and the raps would have more cap space next next year. When he is 'on' he's a huge spark off the bench, and the raps wouldn't need to find a 3rd string pg since he can play either the 1 or 2.

    I agree. I said at the beginning of this past season that Barbosa had the best chance of being traded, but he was never healthy enough, unfortunately. I think they need to wait until he's healthy and then trade him. His best value to the team, at this point, is as a trade asset.
