Nash Recruiting Barbosa to Lakers?

We’ve seen it before. When a player switches uniforms, he sometimes wants former players to join him as well. Steve Nash has played with many guys in his career, but apparently developed a fondness towards Leandro Barbosa.

Leandro Barbosa says the Nets are pursuing him harder than any other NBA team. The 6’2? combo guard tells Fabio Balassiano of Bala na Cesta that the Nets are one of three teams who contacted him but Brooklyn ‘actually pursued us the hardest.’ A league source denied the Nets have serious interest in Barbosa, despite his claims. ‘We are talking to a few teams, among them, the Phoenix Suns, who I have a professional history with…have lived there; with the Brooklyn Nets, who actually pursued us the hardest; and with the Los Angeles Lakers — They ‘re a good team with the personnel they have. Also, Steve Nash (who played with Barbosa in PHX) sent me a text. He wants me to come to LA as soon as possible.
