After 14 years in the NBA, Leandro Barbosa has returned to his native Brazil and have signed for Novo Basquete Brasil side Franca Basquete.

The 34-year-old heads to Sao Paulo where he spent last season with the Phoenix Suns averaging 6.3 points and 1.6 rebounds per game.

Barbosa won the NBA title with the Golden State Warriors and was part of the same Warriors side that secured the best ever regular season record ever at 73-9 the season after, before narrowly missing out on back-to-back titles when they lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
