HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: A smart swap for the Indiana Pacers and Toronto Raptors.

Team Bird gets Barbosa -a reliable, combo guard with the ability to push the ball and score. Best of all, ‘The Brazilian Blur’ is a low key veteran who has the experience to assist a younger squad in the playoffs.

The Raptors weren’t re-signing the former Sixth Man of the Year, as Barbosa would surely leave as a free agent in July. So they did well to get a draft pick.
