New York Knicks: 2016 Free Agents To Watch During NBA Finals

Leandro Barbosa, SG/PG, Golden State Warriors

Leandro Barbosa‘s best days are behind him, but he has proven during this remarkable Warriors run that he’s still a valuable role player.

Barbosa put up his best numbers with the up-tempo Mike D’Antoni Phoenix Suns, so if the Knicks are serious are serious about playing faster Barbosa can be an asset.

He prefers to attack the basket as he averaged 2.1 drives per game in 2015-16 and nearly half of his attempts came less than 10 feet from the rim. That doesn’t mean Barbosa can’t shoot though. He does play for the Warriors.

Barbosa averaged 39.3 percent on catch and shoot threes this season and is a career 38.8 percent shooter from beyond the arc.

Barbosa would immediately endear himself to the Madison Square Garden faithful.
