Leandro Barbosa: Signs With Celtics

Rotowire.com
Update: Barbosa signed a one-year deal with the Celtics, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Recommendation: The signing is a bit of an odd fit for the Celtics, as Barbosa represents more of a scorer off the bench than the pure point guard the Celtics were believed to have a greater need for. In any case, Barbosa and Jason Terry should handle the majority of the backup duties at point guard, though both players are more optimally suited off the ball. Barbosa averaged 11.1 points per game with the Raptors and Pacers last season, but will likely see his scoring downsized given the Celtics' superior supporting cast.
