Leandro Barbosa Trade Sends Former Raptors Guard To Pacers, According To Report

The Indiana Pacers have acquired guard Leandro Barbosa from the Toronto Raptors, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. The Raptors will acquire a second-round pick in return, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.

A former Sixth Man of the Year award winner, Barbosa has fallen a bit into obscurity after being traded to the Raptors. The 29-year old is still productive, though, averaging 12.2 points per game in 22.5 minutes per contest. He will give the Pacers another scoring guard off the bench to go along with George Hill and A.J. Price

The Pacers did not have to send any players back to the Raptors because they have enough cap space to absorb Barbosa's salary. Barbosa cap number is $7.6 million this year before becoming an unrestricted free agent in the summer. The Raptors, meanwhile, trim the same amount off their payroll this season.
