The Phoenix Suns have signed Leandro Barbosa to a 5-year $33m extension that commences at the end of next season. The Brazillian, nicknamed "Leandrinho" (little Leandro) is a key part of the Phoenix run'n'gun offence and the Suns are keen on keeping his energy in Arizona.
Leandrinho was also yesterday announced as part of the Brazillian National Team to compete at the FIBA World Championships in Japan this month. He was named alongside Cleveland Cavs forward Anderson Varejao in the side which is missing Nene Hilario (recovering from last season's injury with Denver) and Rafael Araujo who has decided to dedicate his off-season fully to his new team, the Utah Jazz.
