Matt Barnes has announced his retirement from the NBA after 14 years in the league.
Barnes played his college ball at UCLA and was selected in the second round in the 2002 draft by the Memphis Grizzlies. Barnes, however, didn’t make his NBA debut until 2003 with the Los Angeles Clippers, as he was traded from Memphis to Cleveland and then the Cavs waived him.
Barnes played for the Clippers, Kings, Knicks, Sixers, Grizzlies, Magic, Suns, Lakers and Warriors in his career. He won the 2017 NBA championship with Golden State.
