PHOENIX (AP) - The Phoenix Suns have announced the signing of veteran guard Leandro Barbosa.

Barbosa returned from his native Brazil, where he was preparing for the Rio Olympics, to be re-introduced by the Suns on Tuesday.

Barbosa played eight of his 13 seasons with the Suns. He spent his first seven NBA seasons with Phoenix and returned for the 2013-14 season. He played the past two seasons for Golden State, helping the Warriors win the NBA title in 2014-15.

The agreement with Barbosa had been widely reported on July 7. He signed a two-year, $8 million contract. Only $500,000 of the $4 million in the second year of the deal is guaranteed.

Barbosa, selected by San Antonio as the 28th overall pick in 2003, was traded to Phoenix on draft night.
