Leandro Barbosa in an interview to ESPN.br admitted that he has requested a trade several times but he has been stopped by Danny Ainge.
"I won't lie to you. I tried to get out several times but Danny Ainge doesn't want me to go. He admires my basketball and he will not let me leave Boston" said Barbosa. The Brazilian would love to play for Corinthians. "I'd buy a ticket today to start negotiation to play for Corinthians. It would be great for me, close to my family, to the city I love".
