I am pretty sure that BC would trade Barbosa for a first-rounder in a heartbeat. Problem? No one's offering. Plus, most playoffs-bound teams who could use a player like him are over the cap, so trading a pick for Barbosa's contract is out of the question - and would you take an albatross contract with the late pick to make it work? I wouldn't.
