Larry Bird did make a smart decision when evaluating contracts. Barbosa is in his final year of his contract and the Pacers have enough salary cap to pay the $7.5 million. Then the Pacers have the choice to negotiate a new contract or let him be a free agent - not tying up salary cap next year. It would have been nice to grab a center but this was an overall good pick up for the Pacers.
