07:24 AM ET 01.10 | Leandro Barbosa, who hadn't played in the NBA since February 2013, is back. He was either going to rejoin former Suns coach Alvin Gentry and his former Boston coach, Doc Rivers, for a strong Los Angeles Clippers team or return to the Suns in Phoenix. ... Barbosa chose the Suns, signing a 10-day contract with Phoenix on Wednesday to put the Suns at the 15-man maximum. "I never thought I was going to have a chance to come to Phoenix, seriously," Barbosa, 31, said. ... Barbosa can be signed for two 10-day contracts at most before the Suns have to make a decision whether to keep him for the remainder of the season. "I'm here for this and I'm going to work really hard for that to happen," Barbosa said. "I don't see a point to not stay on the team, so I'm going to do my best so I can help the team and I stick with the team at the end of the year."

Try not to screw any of your teammates wives and you might stay awhile, Leandro.
