Barry grew up surrounded by basketball. Aside from his father being a legendary Hall of Famer, his stepmother, Lynn Barry, was an avid college basketball player too. In addition, all of his three brothers, Scooter, Jon and Drew, had standout collegiate and professional basketball careers.
Barry attended De La Salle High School in Concord, California, where he played for the school’s basketball team, matriculating in 1990. He then enrolled at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon, joining the school’s team, the Beavers. After red-shirting the first season, he had impressive results during the next three seasons, especially in his senior year. He finished his college career averaging 12.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.8 steals per game. Barry graduated from Oregon State in 1995, obtaining a BA in sociology.
The same year he was selected in the first round as the 15th overall pick by the Denver Nuggets in the 1995 NBA Draft, however, he was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers the same day, remaining with the team for two seasons. His rookie season was marked by winning the 1996 Gatorade Slam Dunk Competition during the NBA All-Star Weekend, as the only white player in NBA history to achieve so. He gained a decent popularity and a considerable net worth while with the Clippers.
In 1998 he was traded to the Miami Heat, appearing in only 17 games, averaging 4.1 points per game. The following year he joined the Chicago Bulls, signing a six-year $27 million deal with the team. However, he remained with the team for only one season, averaging 11.1 points per game; still, his wealth grew larger.
Barry then joined the Seattle SuperSonics, signing a four-year deal, which boosted his fortune. While with the SuperSonics, he averaged 11.2 points per game in 296 games. In 2004 the San Antonio Spurs signed him as a free agent, and after spending most of his first season as a backup, Barry entered the starting lineup the following season, helping his team to win the 2005 NBA Championship by defeating the Detroit Pistons. The win made him and his father the second father-son duo to win an NBA Championship, now among four such duos. Two years later saw Barry with the Spurs capturing his second NBA Championship, by defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers. His time with the Spurs significantly contributed to his net worth.
After suffering a calf injury in 2008, the team traded him back to the SuperSonics, but they waived him the following day. Not long after he returned to the Spurs, to remain one year with the possibility for the 2009–2010 season at Veteran Minimum. However, he soon withdrew from his contract and became a free agent. He then joined the Houston Rockets, signing a two-year contract with the team, but the Rockets cut him during the training camp, after which he retired from his professional basketball career.
In 2013, Barry became involved in television broadcasting, appearing on NBA TV’s program “The Starters”, hosting his own segment called “The Bone Zone”. He currently works at NBA TNT as a sports commentator, and at NBA TV as a studio host for the show “NBA Gametime”. His career in broadcasting has been another source of his wealth.
In his private life, Barry was married to Erin Barry from 1998 to 2011 – the couple has two children together. Sources are unaware of his current relationship status.
