UPDATE (9:49 p.m. PST): The Warriors issued a statement regarding the negotiations with guard Leandro Barbosa:
Golden State Warriors General Manager Bob Myers announced today that the team has been engaged in negotiations with free agent guard Leandro Barbosa and intends to re-sign him to a player contract at the conclusion of the NBA Moratorium Period.
The Golden State Warriors are reportedly bringing back veteran point guard Leandro Barbosa.
The "Brazilian Blur" will return to the Warriors bench on a one-year, $2.25 million contract, according to an ESPN report.
Barbosa, 32, averaged 7.1 points and 14.9 minutes over 66 games in his first season with Golden State last year. He averaged 5.0 points and 10.9 minutes over 21 playoff games en route to an NBA championship.
Barbosa famously predicted a Warriors championship back in March during a postgame interview with CSN sideline reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude.
"Definitely, definitely," Barbosa said when asked if things were coming together nicely for the team heading into the playoffs. "We gonna be championship."
