Latest News
July 9 1:42 PM PT2:42 PM MT3:42 PM CT4:42 PM ET20:42 GMT4:42 1:42 PM MST3:42 PM EST0:42 UAE (+1)22:4216:42 ET3:42 PM CT19:42 - Barnes has signed with the Kings on a reported two-year, $12 million contract that contains a player option in the second year.
Analysis: The 36-year-old reunites with new Kings coach Dave Joerger, who coached Barnes in Memphis last season. Barnes, who previously played in Sacramento during the 2004-05 campaign, averaged 10 points and 5.5 rebounds in 76 games with the Grizzlies in 2015-16.
Apr. 23 9:15 PM PT10:15 PM MT11:15 PM CT12:15 AM ET4:15 GMT12:15 9:15 PM MST11:15 PM EST8:15 UAE06:150:15 ET11:15 PM CT3:15 - Barnes had 17 points with 11 rebounds Friday for the Grizzlies.

Analysis: Barnes and the similarly eccentric Lance Stephenson may be the only players worth owning right now on a banged-up Memphis roster. He's averaging 18.8 points and 8.5 rebounds over a four-game stretch.
Apr. 3 6:42 PM PT7:42 PM MT8:42 PM CT9:42 PM ET1:42 GMT9:42 6:42 PM MST8:42 PM EST5:42 UAE (+1)03:4221:42 ET8:42 PM CT0:42 - Barnes had 24 points Sunday.
Analysis: You should have your head examined if you think Barnes is a trustworthy fantasy player given the fact that he should probably have his head examined after a career full of questionable and volatile behavior.
Mar. 19 2:23 PM PT3:23 PM MT4:23 PM CT5:23 PM ET21:23 GMT5:23 2:23 PM MST4:23 PM EST1:23 UAE (+1)22:2317:23 ET3:23 PM CT20:23 - Barnes has been suspended one game without pay after the NBA says he tried to enter Milwaukee's locker room and verbally challenge Bucks forward John Henson after both players were ejected.
Analysis: On Thursday, Henson blocked Barnes' shot with 5.5 seconds left in the Bucks' 96-86 win over the Grizzlies in Milwaukee. After the play, Henson taunted Barnes and was given two technical fouls and ejected. Barnes was charged with a technical foul and ejected for continuing to use obscenities.
Mar. 12 10:35 PM PT11:35 PM MT12:35 AM CT1:35 AM ET6:35 GMT14:35 11:35 PM MST1:35 AM EST10:35 UAE07:351:35 ET12:35 AM CT5:35 - Barnes had a season-high 26 points with 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his first career triple-double in the Grizzlies' 121-114 OT win against New Orleans on Friday.
Analysis: The performance was an aberration since Barnes averages just 9.4 points, 5.1 boards and 2.0 assists on the season.
Mar. 10 9:40 AM PT10:40 AM MT11:40 AM CT12:40 PM ET17:40 GMT1:40 10:40 AM MST12:40 PM EST21:40 UAE18:4012:40 ET11:40 AM CT16:40 - Derek Fisher says his altercation with Barnes had nothing to do with his firing as New York Knicks coach.
Analysis: Fisher wrote Thursday in a first-person piece in Sports Illustrated's The Cauldron that the Knicks never mentioned his personal life or that players had lost confidence in him because of it when they fired him in January after 1 1/2 years. The altercation with Barnes, now with the Memphis Grizzlies, took place in California in October when Fisher was at the home of Gloria Govan, Barnes' estranged wife.
Mar. 7 2:38 PM PT3:38 PM MT4:38 PM CT5:38 PM ET22:38 GMT6:38 3:38 PM MST5:38 PM EST2:38 UAE (+1)23:3817:38 ET4:38 PM CT21:38 - Barnes will not play Monday against Cleveland due to a hamstring injury.
Analysis: With Memphis on the second of a back-to-back, the soon-to-be 36-year-old is likely just getting a night off for the stretch run.
Feb. 25 9:52 PM PT10:52 PM MT11:52 PM CT12:52 AM ET5:52 GMT13:52 10:52 PM MST12:52 AM EST9:52 UAE06:520:52 ET11:52 PM CT4:52 - Barnes scored 25 points with eight rebounds in the Grizzlies' 128-119 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.
Analysis: Barnes' effort came three days after he only managed to get one point while missing all six of his shots from the field in a loss at Toronto. He's just not consistent enough to be a fantasy option, but he is capable of being productive every so often.
Jan. 17 10:16 AM PT11:16 AM MT12:16 PM CT1:16 PM ET18:16 GMT2:16 11:16 AM MST1:16 PM EST22:16 UAE19:1613:16 ET12:16 PM CT16:16 - The NBA fined Barnes $35,000 for making ''inappropriate public comments'' condoning violence. The fine was announced Sunday, a day after Memphis beat the Knicks 103-95 in the teams' first meeting since the league suspended Barnes for two games for fighting with New York coach Derek Fisher in October.
Analysis: According to the Commercial Appeal, Barnes said at the Grizzlies' pregame shootaround: ''Violence is never the answer, but sometimes it is.'' NBA vice president for basketball operations Kiki VanDeWeghe said Barnes' "words are unacceptable and entirely inconsistent with the core principles of this game and the NBA.''
Jan. 12 4:09 PM PT5:09 PM MT6:09 PM CT7:09 PM ET0:09 GMT8:09 5:09 PM MST7:09 PM EST4:09 UAE (+1)01:0919:09 ET6:09 PM CT22:09 - Barnes returned from a one-game absence to score 18 points in Thursday's win over Detroit.
Analysis: The veteran small forward showed no ill effects from the bruised right thumb that kept him out Tuesday, as he hit all six of his 3-point attempts for his fourth straight double-figure game.
Dec. 28 8:55 AM PT9:55 AM MT10:55 AM CT11:55 AM ET16:55 GMT0:55 9:55 AM MST11:55 AM EST20:55 UAE17:5511:55 ET10:55 AM CT14:55 - The NBA suspended Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes two games without pay Monday for what the league said was a "physical altercation" with Derek Fisher and for "threatening" the New York Knicks coach in October.
Analysis: The league investigated the Oct. 3 incident in Redondo Beach, California, between Barnes and Fisher - former teammates with the Los Angeles Lakers from 2010-12.
Dec. 14 9:02 PM PT10:02 PM MT11:02 PM CT12:02 AM ET5:02 GMT13:02 10:02 PM MST12:02 AM EST9:02 UAE06:020:02 ET11:02 PM CT3:02 - Barnes started for the fourth time this season on Sunday and finished with 13 points and 13 rebounds.

Analysis: Barnes spoke Thursday after the Grizzlies' morning shootaround. The veteran says in video posted by The Commercial Appeal that he has not spoken with the NBA yet. Barnes says the "real details" will come out in due time and would not comment on what happened.
