Miami Heat, Leandro Barbosa Showing 'Mutual Interest'

I don’t know what it is about the Miami Heat seeking players that were decent four years ago to fill out its bench (see: Reggie Williams and Shawne Williams a.k.a the Williams Brothers) but it turns out the Heat and Leandro Barbosa are showing ‘mutual interest,’ according to Basketball Insiders’ Alex Kennedy.

Barbosa made a name for himself with the old Phoenix Suns, hitting three-pointers at an unconscious rate.

I mean, seriously, what is this? Is the floor lava?

Barbosa is still a quality shooter but his production has dipped the last three years, spending time with the Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors and then back to the Suns last season.

If the 31-year-old signs with the Heat–which Kennedy reports is likely to happen–it will be to help fill the void left by Ray Allen, who seems doubtful to return.
