The Warriors have reached an agreement with guard Leandro Barbosa for the 2014-15 NBA season, according to an ESPN report.

The deal is reportedly for one year at the veteran minimum.

Golden State signed Shaun Livingston this offseason, but a recent procedure on his toe could jeopardize the guard's participation in training camp and the team was looking for depth at the position.

Barbosa, 31, is an 11-year NBA veteran whose 7.5 points and 18.4 minute averages last year with the Suns were down from his career averages of 11.9 points and 23.7 minutes per game.

Barbosa is currently in Spain, preparing to compete for Brazil in the upcoming FIBA World Cup.

After spending his first eight seasons in Phoenix, Barbosa has played for the Toronto Raptors, Indiana Pacers and Boston Celtics.
