Toronto Raptors guard Leandro Barbosa has signed a deal to play in his native Brazil.

Barbosa signed with Rio de Janeiro-based club Flamengo. The deal includes a clause that would allow him to return to the NBA if the lockout ends.

A statement on Flamengo's website says Barbosa signed Thursday. Details of the deal weren't released. Barbosa averaged 13.3 points, 2.1 assists and 24.1 minutes in 58 games last season - his first in Toronto. He made $7.1 million last season and was second on the team in 3-point shooting.
