#4 – Leandro Barbosa, Toronto Raptors
When the Toronto Raptors originally acquired Leandro Barbosa from the Phoenix Suns for Hedo Turkoglu there was a notion that he might be the point guard who could lead the Raptors into the future. The team had come to grips with the fact that Jose Calderon was not that person, and they were already embroiled in efforts to trade Calderon to anyone willing to take him. In fact, the Raptors were very close to sending Calderon to Charlotte for Boris Diaw and Tyson Chandler before the Bobcats backed out at the last minute. Now the Raptors are looking to move both Calderon and Barbosa, and with Barbosa’s $7 million deal expiring at season’s end, it seems likely they will find a taker, at least by the trade deadline. Toronto is still looking for that floor leader of the future, though there is hope that Jerryd Bayless may turn out to be him.
