Barcelona has signed point-guard Andre Barrett(1.78-PG) for the next two seasons(2008-2010). This was announced by the team on Wednesday. Whereas his height is restrictive in the NBA, Barrett can have a great career in Europe even with some titles.

We'll, I'm happy for Andre Barrett, He gets to play for a real legit team in europe where he'll start. All he does here is just tear up the D-league and get a few 10-day contracts.
