Barbosa not with team yet

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Guard Leandro Barbosa did not join the Celtics for a morning shootaround at the Barclay’s Center and is not expected to be with team for Thursday night’s exhibition game against the Brooklyn Nets. Barbosa has agreed to a contract with the Celtics but the deal has not been finalized, according to a team source.

“We’re looking for guards or bigs, whatever we can find,” coach Doc Rivers said. “We’re trying to improve our team. If we had a big that was better for us we’d sign him, too. We have a 15-man roster and we’re going to try to fill it up.”
