Celtics’ Barbosa has not asked for a trade, Ainge says

As far as Celtics president Danny Ainge is concerned, Leandro Barbosa has not requested a trade and what’s more, he was in the starting lineup for Friday’s matchup with the Bulls.

According to a Brazilian publication, Barbosa said he wanted to be traded or released to seek a team that would give him more playing time. Ainge said Friday that Barbosa has not sought a trade and considers the issue closed.
