Matthew Kelly Barnes is a former NBA player who spent 14 years in the league. The Memphis Grizzlies selected Barnes in the second round of the NBA Draft in 2002. In his final season in the league, he won an NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors.

Barnes was born to a white mother and an African American father in the California city of Santa Clara. He was a football and basketball letterman at Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, California.

In each sport, he received honors such as All-American, All-State, All-CIF, All-City, and All-League.

Barnes was an All-Pacific-10 Honorable Mention selection in 2001 during his four years at UCLA.

With just one day of Golden State Warriors training camp in October 2006, Barnes signed with the team and immediately elevated his standing in the NBA.

Barnes was given increased playing time by coach Don Nelson when Mike Dunleavy, Jr. was benched. On December 26, 2006, he tied the Warriors’ franchise record with seven three-pointers.

On March 29, 2007, Jason Richardson set a new record by making eight three-pointers in a game. According to wide receiver Barnes, who was an All-American in high school, if the Warriors hadn’t signed him, he would have gone on to try out for the NFL.
