The signing will help load Boston's backcourt, which already includes Rajon Rondo, Courtney Lee, Avery Bradley and Jason Terry. 

Barbosa adds speed and scoring to Boston's arsenal, but can also handle the ball. Doc Rivers has suggested that Boston might have the deepest backcourt in the league once Bradley is healthy.
