If you can't create a new Suns playoff team, the best thing you can do is harken back to the last one.
Tonight, the Phoenix Suns agreed to terms on a two-year deal with Leandro Barbosa for $8 million. The second year is only guaranteed for $500,000, per John Gambodoro.

Free agent Leandro Barbosa has agreed to a two-year, $8M deal with the Suns, league source tells @TheVertical.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) July 7, 2016
Now he joins Jared Dudley in a 2010 redux. All we need now is Amare Stoudemire to sign!
Leandro Barbosa had a really nice couple of years with the Golden State Warriors under Steve Kerr as a big contributor off the bench. He averaged 7 points off the bench, along with a 1.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 16 minutes a night behind Klay Thompson and Steph Curry.
With the Suns he will be yet another solid backup veteran, likely taking John Jenkins spot in competition with Archie Goodwin for the 4th guard role behind Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight and Devin Booker.
