Celtics sign Leandro Barbosa

Well, that didn’t take long. A day after waiving Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith, the Celtics turned to Leandro Barbosa to address their backup point guard needs. Barbosa is a serviceable combo guard with a score-first mentality.  But when you consider how few options there were out there, and how little Rajon Rondo will actually [...]
