Report: Pacers Land Leandro Barbosa In Trade With Raptors

The Indiana Pacers have been looking to add one more piece as they make their push to be a serious threat in the Eastern Conference playoffs -- and now it appears they've got it. Leandro Barbosa is heading to Indy, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.

Barbosa signed a five-year, $33 million extension with the Phoenix Suns back in October 2006. He's currently playing out the final season of that deal with the Toronto Raptors, making $7.6 mil this year on his expiring deal -- but the Pacers, being significantly under the salary cap with Danny Granger and David West as the only big-money players on their roster, are able to deal for Barbosa with just a pick and cash.

The 29-year-old Brazilian shooting guard is averaging 12.2 points per game off the bench for the Raptors this season. He should slide into the Pacers' rotation nicely as the backup for two-guard Paul George.

The Pacers are 25-16, fourth-best in the Eastern Conference.
