Golden State Warriors announce Leandro Barbosa's 1-year deal

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The deal struck last week between the Golden State Warriors and veteran guard Leandro Barbosa is complete.

The Warriors announced Barbosa's signing Monday. The contract is worth about $2.5 million.

The 32-year-old combo guard is one of coach Steve Kerr's favorites from their time together in Phoenix, where Kerr was the general manager. The Brazilian-born Barbosa averaged 7.1 points and 1.5 assists in 14.9 minutes last season with the NBA champion Warriors.

He served as a reserve behind MVP Stephen Curry and All-Star guard Klay Thompson. Barbosa also played for Toronto, Indiana, Boston and Phoenix again in 2013-14 before joining Golden State last summer.

Barbosa has averaged 11.4 points, 2.3 assists and 2.1 rebounds in his 12-year career.
