Barbosa has signed a contract with Sesi Franca Basketball of Brazil.
The veteran was waived by the Suns in early July after playing 67 games with the team in 2016-17, posting 6.3 points across 14.4 minutes per game. He'll now join a team in Brazil, where he was born, to play professionally.
Barbosa was waived by the Suns on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports.
Barbosa took on a minor role with the Suns during the 2016-17 campaign, playing in 67 games, while averaging 6.3 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 14.4 minutes. The 34-year-old veteran hasn't mentioned anything about retirement, so it appears he'll look to latch on elsewhere prior to training camp. He should be able to mentor some of the younger guards around the league, which should mean plenty of interest from potential suitors. However, Barbosa likely won't see a ton of minutes no matter where he signs, so there will be better fantasy options elsewhere.
Barbosa (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Mavericks, Craig Grialou of the Arizona Republic reports.
Barbosa will miss an eighth straight game with a right hamstring strain and it wouldn't be surprising if he didn't see the court again this season. The Suns have already been ruled out of the playoffs and appear content at getting some of their younger players more time, so there's no real reason to bring the veteran back. That said, look for Barbosa to have his status updated again prior to Tuesday's regular-season finale.
Barbosa (hamstring) won't play in Friday's game against the Thunder.
The Suns will hold Barbosa out of a seventh straight game due to the right hamstring spasm, and with coach Earl Watson comfortable giving his younger guards all the run they can handle as the season winds down, it's possible we've seen the last of the 34-year-old in 2016-17. He'll still be evaluated on a day-to-day basis ahead of the Suns' final two contests.
Barbosa (hamstring) will sit out Wednesday's game against the Warriors, Craig Grialou of ArizonaSports.com reports.
It's the sixth straight absence for Barbosa, who has been sidelined with a right hamstring spasms. Backcourt starters Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker should once again be in store for an abundance of minutes with little guard depth behind them.
Barbosa will be absent for Sunday's game against the Rockets.
Barbosa will miss a fourth straight game as a result of lingering hamstring spasms. Devin Booker will likely draw heavy minutes as a starter with Jared Dudley probably filling in off the bench.

Barbosa will miss his third straight game due to lingering hamstring spasms. As a result, Jared Dudley will likely see some extra run.
Barbosa (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Clippers, Craig Grialou of Arizona Sports reports.
Barbosa may miss his third consecutive game with a lingering right hamstring injury Thursday. With Devin Booker (ankle) also a game-time decision, the Suns' backcourt will be stretched thin, possibly prompting coach Earl Watson to send Derrick Jones into the starting five if both Barbosa and Booker are absent once more.
Barbosa (hamstring) will sit out Tuesday against the Hawks, Mike Conti of Sports Radio 92.9 AM The Game reports.
Barbosa continues to deal with a lingering right hamstring injury, which will force him to sit out a second straight game. That leaves the Suns extremely shorthanded in the backcourt, with the likes of Eric Bledsoe (knee) and Brandon Knight (back) having been shut down for the season, Devin Booker (ankle) sitting out with an ankle injury and Ronnie Price still questionable with a lower-leg injury. Those absences should result in heavy workloads for both Tyler Ulis and T.J. Warren, who project to serve as the starting guards Tuesday.

Barbosa sat out Sunday's loss to the Hornets with the right hamstring spasm and could be at risk of missing his second straight game. Tyler Ulis was forced to shoulder hefty minutes Sunday, and would be forced to do so again if Barbosa and Ronnie Price (leg) are unavailable.
Barbosa is dealing with a left hamstring injury and will sit out Sunday's game against the Hornets, Doug Haller of the Arizona Republic reports.
With Ronnie Price (leg), Eric Bledsoe (knee) and Brandon Knight (back) out in addition to Barbosa, Tyler Ulis will be the only true point guard on the roster and should be in line for a huge workload. Along with Ulis, Devin Booker could see more ball-handling opportunities, while Derrick Jones and Jared Dudley could pick up some extra minutes off the bench.
Barbosa (illness) registered 13 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound and one assist across 18 minutes in a 112-97 loss to the Heat on Tuesday.
Barbosa had missed the last two games while dealing with the illness, but looked healthy in his return to action, turning in his best scoring total since March 3. With Brandon Knight (back) and Eric Bledsoe (knee) shut down for the season, Barbosa looks like he'll benefit from a consistent role on the second unit the rest of the way as coach Earl Watson's first guard off the bench.
Barbosa has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Heat.
Barbosa was listed as questionable heading into Tuesday after missing the Suns' previous two games with the illness, but his participation in morning shootaround hints that he'll be back in action. The Suns are also expected to get back shooting guard Devin Booker (ankle), so look for Barbosa to serve as his primary backup, though the veteran could also see time at point guard behind starter Tyler Ulis with Ronnie Price (leg) doubtful to play.
Barbosa (illness) went through shootaround Tuesday, but his status is uncertain for the Suns' game later in the evening against the Heat, Doug Haller of The Arizona Republic reports.
The veteran has missed the team's last two games due to an illness, but the fact that he was able to go through shootaround is an encouraging sign. The Suns are still considering Barbosa questionable, however, so look for a more definitive update closer to the 7:30 p.m. ET tip off. If cleared to play, Barbosa would likely serve as the primary backup to starting shooting guard Devin Booker (ankle), though he could also see time at point guard if Ronnie Price (leg) remains out.
Barbosa (illness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Barbosa has missed the Suns' last two games while battling the illness, and the team likely won't have an update on his status for Tuesday until assessing his health during morning shootaround. With Ronnie Price (leg) and Devin Booker (ankle) also listed as questionable, the Suns could be quite shorthanded in the backcourt again if all three players remain sidelined.
Barbosa (illness) will sit out Sunday's game against the Pistons, Doug Haller of The Arizona Republic reports.
Barbosa also sat out Friday's game against the Magic, so he'll be missing a second straight game as he continues to work through an illness. With another few days off, he could be available for Tuesday's game against the Heat, but he'll likely need to log a full practice in order to be cleared. With Ronnie Price (leg) also doubtful, the Suns are going to be thin at point guard, which likely means a monster workload for Tyler Ulis.
Barbosa (illness) was ruled out of Friday's game against the Magic, Craig Grialou of ArizonaSports.com reports.
Barbosa was considered doubtful to play after sitting out the second half of Wednesday's contest with the same illness. His absence Friday comes with especially poor timing as he leaves Ronnie Price and Jared Dudley as the Suns' only depth at guard behind starters Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker.
Barbosa (illness) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Magic.
Barbosa ended up missing the second half of Wednesday's loss to the Kings while dealing with the illness, and based on the Suns' game notes, it appears he may still be feeling under the weather. In the event the Suns grant the veteran the night off, projected backcourt starters Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker could both potentially challenge for 40 minutes, as the team is already without Eric Bledsoe (knee) and could be missing Brandon Knight (back) and Derrick Jones (back). If all three of those injured players remain sidelined along with Barbosa, Ronnie Price and Jared Dudley would represent the only backcourt reserves.
Barbosa will not play in the second half of Wednesday's game against the Kings due to an illness.
Barbosa played 10 minutes Wednesday evening before leaving, collecting four points (2-6 FG), two rebounds and one assist during his action. The veteran's next chance to retake the floor arrives Friday against the Magic, but expect an update on his status before the tilt,
Barbosa posted 14 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding two assists and a rebounds over 20 minutes in Friday's 118-111 win against the Thunder.
Barbosa has double digits in points across back-to-back games for the first time since a four-game run of 10 or more points back on Dec. 6-11. The veteran is still only worth a look in deeper formats since he doesn't offer much help in fantasy categories outside of points.
