From his early days, Matt began to expose his sportsmanlike talents, which he only developed further throughout his education. He was attended Del Campo High School, where he was a member of the football and basketball teams, eventually earning All-American, All-State, All-CIF, All-City, and All-League accolades in both sports.

Barnes then enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles where he focused on basketball, playing it for the next four years he spent at the University.

He declared himself for the 2002 NBA Draft, and was selected by the Memphis Grizzlies as the 46th pick. However, Barnes didn`t put on the Memphis jersey, as he was soon traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but even there he didn`t manage to prove himself worthy of the NBA team, and was waved in October the same year.

In the next two years, Matt played for the lower league teams, Fayetteville Pirates (D-League), and Long Beach Jam (ABA).

He made a return to the NBA in 2004, signing with the Clippers, but changed between three more teams including the New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers and Sacramento Kings, until 2008 when he became a part of the Golden State Warriors.

While being with the Warriors, his game numbers drastically improved, which enabled him to sign a larger contract, and increase his net worth. He played for the Golden State Warriors until the 2009 season, when he signed a one year contract with the Phoenix Suns, which also boosted his net worth.

Before 2015, when he signed with Memphis Grizzlies for a second time in his career, Barnes played for both the Los Angeles teams, Clippers and Lakers, increasing his net worth further. With the Clippers he has had the best numbers in his career so far, leaving his mark in the playoffs actually in each of the seasons 2010-15, scoring 20 and more points in several games. He has so far played well over 800 games.

Apart from his basketball career, Matt has also been featured in a number of TV shows, including “Think Like A Man” (2012), “Home And Family” (2013) and others, which have also had a positive effect on his net worth.

In addition to his media popularity, Barnes is regarded as a humanitarian; he founded the organization Athletes vs. Cancer in honor of his mother who died from a multiple cancer diagnosis. He also hosts the “Matt Barnes Basketball Camp” for children who are 7 to 14 year old.
