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.
