This quote is from an ESPN-Brazil story in Portuguese translated to English:
Hastily hired by the Boston Celtics, Leandro Barbosa not living its best moment in the NBA. The Brazilian is averaging just 4.9 points and 10.7 minutes per game - both the lowest marks of his career 9 years in the NBA. In an interview with radio "Bradesco Sports FM," Barbosa revealed that he even asked to leave the Celtics."I will not lie to you, I tried to get out several times, but Danny Ainge (general manager of the franchise) does not want to let me go. He's a guy that comes admiring my basketball for many years. I was supposed to have got a good contract with the Boston Celtics, but did not. He will not let me go so no, "said the Brazilian.
