Matt Kelly Barnes (born March 9, 1980) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association (NBA).
Barnes attended Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, California, where he was a letterman in football and basketball. He earned All-American, All-State, All-CIF, All-City, and All-League honors in each sport.
After a college career at UCLA, Barnes was a second-round draft choice of the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2002 NBA Draft. He was then traded that summer along with Nick Anderson to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Wesley Person, but was cut that October. He made his NBA debut with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2004, and signed with the Sacramento Kings later that year.
He was traded by the Kings halfway through the 2004-05 season along with Chris Webber to the 76ers, in exchange for Kenny Thomas, Corliss Williamson and Brian Skinner, though he never suited up for a game with them due to knee tendinitis. He was waived and then signed a free agent contract with the New York Knicks in the 2005 NBA offseason. He was waived by the Knicks during the 2005-06 season after playing six games. He was then claimed by the 76ers to serve a second stint in Philadelphia, where he finished out the season.
