I just hope Danny isnt making promises he cant fulfill. But whats with these guys wanting to be released/traded? First Darko now Barbosa. Didnt they know what they were committing to when they signed on here? Its rediculous.

What confuses me is this quote:

I was supposed to have got a good contract with the Boston Celtics, but did not. He will not let me go so no.

Good as in he gets to play with an elite franchise in the Celtics or good as in $$ wise? Its not like teams were jumping out the gate to sign Barbosa.

Locker room issue or trade coming soon? Whats going on here!?

Ray Allen 2004 on Kobe Bryant: "in about a year or two he will be calling out to Jerry Buss that we need some help in here, or trade me."

UPDATE 2:22 PM EST: We know there’s another member of the Leandro Barbosa household that doesn’t want Leandro in Boston.  Barbosa’s wife and Brazillian actress, Samara Felippo:

I wouldn't get too wrapped up in translated quotes.  I think a lot can get lost in translation.

I wonder if other players are going to start looking over their shoulders for a trade.

Barbosa strongly denies report of trade request: "No, I want to play. I want to be here. That's it."

Barbosa was shown both the translation and original story and denied ever making the statements.

As for uneven playing time, Barbosa says, "I knew it was going to be like this when I came here."
