Matt Barnes

The Golden State Warriors plan to sign controversial free agent Matt Barnes in the wake of Kevin Durant's devastating knee injury on Tuesday. Durant, 28, will miss the rest of the regular season with what the team doctor is calling a hyperextended knee.

Durant suffered the injury when his teammate, center Zaza Pachulia, fell on his left leg in the 1st quarter of the Warriors vs Washington Wizards game on Tuesday. The Warriors lost to the Wizards 112-108.

The Sacramento Kings, who signed Barnes before the start of the 2016-17 season, is expected to waive the troublesome star to create roster space for three players.

"It's a dream come true!" Barnes told The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears. "I feel like I helped start something in '07, and now I'm coming back to help finish it."

Barnes told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne that he will sign a contract for the rest of the season.

The father-of-2 expressed his excitement in an Instagram post on Tuesday, calling this "the happiest day of my life" after the birth of his twins.

The 36-year-old veteran player was drafted in the second round of the 2002 NBA draft by the Memphis Grizzlies. He previously played for over a dozen pro teams including a short stint with the Warriors in 2007. He has now played for all 4 California NBA teams.

    I hope KD is back by the playoffs! He's a GOOD look on that team!
    Yasssss!!! Show up and show out Matt!

  • Strong White Woman

    This is great. He'll remain in Cali near his kids, their Mom, and their step Deddy?

  • PettyEyezPrime

    PETTY LOL

  • PettyEyezPrime

    KEEP IT ABOUT BALL MATT!!!!! No more riding up the coast and getting fined over old ?

  • Angela

    Good for him...Gloria is prolly plottin on how to get back with him and on this new season of BBWLA now that Ev and Tami will be back??

  • PettyEyezPrime

    She better ride out with Derek and leave Matt alone. Hell, they BOTH could use them child support and spousal support checks. Derek is paying his wife lovely and I'm sure he needs to recoup that money somehow.

  • Buttercup

    Glo will send a "Hey big head" text in 5...4...3..

  • imright
  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    No more long drives needed!! Derek probably ready to move Glo farther out.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    For the second time, right?! We weren't upset the first time and not upset this time.

  • TOO REAL

    who cares

  • PettyEyezPrime

    The only thing I EVER wanted from Black Ty is his music. Not a quote, a lecture, a thesis or a damn thought and for sure not his paynus.

  • Dr. P

    his song and pics was so nice. He has the submissive wife he always wanted, awwww...

  • Strong White Woman

    Yes

  • stav

    Woop de doo! He's arrogant, and not attractive at all IMO!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I was going to answer this for you like this:
    1 Word 1 Syllable 3 Letters: YES

  • Buttercup

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say the garden wasn't checking for Tyrese. He's one of the celebs who should've steered clear of socha media.

    A woman who could be mistaken for a Glovan, a Kardash, a Ms Reggie Bush, an insta model, an I fly to Dubai every three months for reasons unknown. All these women look like cousins. Weird. But if he's happy, then hey, who am I to sprinkle salt?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    YAll heard about the exscape reunion?

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Yes and kept his show with Rev Run where he was obviously fronting. I hate fake woke ninjas preaching.

  • iWasteTime

    Yes ma'am!!!!

  • imright

    i kno i was jk???

  • imright

    no clue

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Yes Ma'am. Kandi was warned to keep her sugar puff in her pants and not mess it up.

  • Strong White Woman

    Lol. I was a bit upset. No invite? I though me and black Ty were cool? Maybe he took my pregnancy into consideration? Knew I wouldn't be flying anytime soon? Either way he will be reviving an angry text message in lieu of a congrats?

  • imright

    hes sooo annoying i was jk when i said sorry ladies???

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    CTHU

  • imright

    yess he sd womens voices should never go over a certain octave??

  • Dr. P

    yes he did. The prayer that he posted for his wife had controlling all over it.

  • yallcrazy

    Happy for him. He had a rough 2016. Cheating is one thing...I'm sure he did it to Gloria too. But she pulled that ace out her hand when she messed with his friend. Thats a hell no

  • yallcrazy

    Yes. I'm here for it too. I see a lot of 90s feel coming back. Im happy about it. Times were better...might soften people up

  • MsPam

    What happened to the black queens he used to talk about. I guess he couldn't find him one.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    guess he AIN'T BOTHER TO find him one.

  • taurus_32

    On instagram he called her his black queen

  • nucynu25

    Bloop

  • yallcrazy

    Right. Fake ass. I've never liked him so I'm not surprised of this choice.

  • Strong White Woman

    Lmao! As if it's not relevant. Matt's bio will include an entire section devoted to his legal troubles, anger management, and his brother wife Derek? Is what it is. He chose to drive a million miles to beat down a man half his size for sleeping with his ex. Even though he himself was laid up with fraternal snow bunny twins at the time, allegedly. I like Matt. He's a mess though?

  • yallcrazy

    For real? He need his ass whooped. Some of these black men know they so embarrassing

  • Darkandlovely617?

    ?

  • IAmLegend
  • iWasteTime

    Norma is Black and he remarried his ex-wife

  • taurus_32

    yup he wrote a long ass post about it smh. love who you love but I see a pattern with these entertainers and athletes

  • iWasteTime

    Norma is black and this is their second marriage to each other

  • morenYAHdelsur

    WHAT?!?! Them heffas made up?!?!

  • nucynu25

    Who's Norma ?

  • MissyJ

    Why come she ain't black?

  • iWasteTime

    Tyrese ex wife and new wife

  • KDub

    Saw the injury live last night. It was AWFUL. Get well KD

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    you can't turn a ___ in to a _____.

  • MissyJ

    The context clues ain't give it away lol

  • Aries Dog

    Whattt?...they had been separated for over 2 years. He beat her so bad she couldn't shoot half of the first season of basketball wifes and she's wrong. It's like the twilight zone..psspft got me defending a damn Govan!

  • nucynu25

    lol obviously not but I figured just was making sure ...

  • KDub

    Tyrese had another wife? This ain't Norma. I'm lost.

  • nucynu25

    I didn't know that. That's cold.

  • Strong White Woman

    I'm not saying she ain't Black. I don't know what she is. Just has that look that many of the wives/girlfriends have. It's as if there's some secret service they order them from. These Black men tend to range in shape, color, and size. From a Tyrese to a Matt Barnes. Yet their significant others all look alike. Weird.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    He wanted a chick who didn't have an aggressive cell in her body.. he may have said "bone". Let a King be a King... yeah, he was better off leaving us alone. We raise households these days and don't have time to play submissive slaves to our men in 2017. Happy for him. I hope she can hold down the house while he is out shooting Transformers 18 and Fast Furious 22.

    Well pattern been going on for eons. Sammy Davis and many married white, light, exotical in the 40s, 50s, and early 60s.

  • Buttercup

    Hey lovely?

  • missmiami305

    Fugg Tyrese! All the women flocked and bought his book/album cuz he was pandering like most of them do. They see black women as easy prey to sell their bs and sadly some by it. Not most Roses though. Ijs fugg him. That's all. I didn't buy it and wasn't checking for him anyway. He's not worthy of a debate.

  • iWasteTime

    I need Who Can I run to live and as an Adult!!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I remember him being married, never bothered to see who- then glimpsed a post that said he was remarried- still ain't look to see to who- just remember that pretty baby girl of his. She looks Govan/Kardashian-ish though.

    I still stand by- No one was upset about him being off the market- either time.

  • missmiami305

    So is this is ex-wife or what? I'm lost.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    I dont think that's Norma, the ex wife.
    Looks very different to me.

  • KDub

    Let me go do this hw. Never heard this. I'm not saying she lying. But these Govan girls got a messy history. Why Matt wasn't called a monster til they broke up? I'm not here for DV. But certainly ain't here for one sided Govan stories

  • missmiami305

    Ok that's not her. Different woman. Similar look.

  • iWasteTime

    Per that article she is his ex wife and the mother of his 9 yr old! I can't call it, I didn't know he was -married in 2007-2009 ... lol
    I googled Tyrese wife and that was the 3rd link. the others said IDK who she is ... lol

  • missmiami305

    I'm lost. They don't give the players notice or a heads up about being traded? They find out after it happens? Reminds me of the slave trade or sumthin

  • Strong White Woman

    Right. I'm just mad I wasn't invited? Imma text his mama?

  • iWasteTime

    I put the article I got it from below.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    In December, 2010 Glo did an interview:

    Matt Barnes Gets Arrested:
    I just think it was something that got blown out of proportion because Matt is from Sacramento. It’s completely false. Matt is very aggressive on-court, but at home, he’s one of the best fiances. He’s an amazing father and he’s just a teddy bear. We just moved to LA together, so we are fine. I hate for him to be painted with that type of reputation, but we’ll work through it.

    Matt Barnes Becomes Headline News for Domestic Violence:
    I think it became a headline because we live in a community that’s just nosy. We were outside kind of arguing so I think that kind of got people interested real quick. I think the neighbors just got involved too quickly (and were) too irrational.

    This happened in September, 2010.

    I saw nothing else about him and Glo fighting.

  • missmiami305

    She doesn't look like his bm but she could have had procedures. She looks to be of middle eastern decent. Oh well! Good for him. NEXT! Lol. I am pissed and idk why. I am tired of these men emotionally abusing black women. Pandering us with their bs and doing the complete opposite. It's hurtful and I am being honest. My horoscope said i would be on an emotional rollercoaster and maybe thats it lol offtopic.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    He'd been cut from the Sacramento Kings on Monday, so he was actually without a team, so he was a free agent in this case.

    But generally, unless you're one of the few players with a no-trade clause, you're basically team property and they can trade you whenever they want.

  • missmiami305

    Off topic, I bet she wants to send his kids now lol. That's her level of petty. When he gets traded now she wants to give him the opportunity.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Was waiting for this and that teleprompter speech, since Pres. Obama was always blasted for using one

  • missmiami305

    Wow! Thanks for the update. I knew about the no-trade clause and team property stuff. But you'd think they would give you the courtesy of telling you it's a possibility. Anyway, I'm happy for him. Steph needs the help. I like the kid.

  • missmiami305

    that post gonna be filled with trolls lol. lemme head on over

  • yallcrazy

    Long long time. And its a sad embarrassing shame. Kissing these folks ass. Giving money right back to they white asses. Racist father, brother and uncle living good off his ass smh...they so stupid

  • Strong White Woman

    I'm gonna skip it. Y'all be safe up there?

  • Strong White Woman

    They are often completely in the dark. Very unfortunate. Did you see that video of Demarcus Cousins finding out during his post all stars conference? The media knew before he did. You could see the hurt in his face as his agent whispered it in his ear.

  • Miany

    dang...the savagery! yt aint loyal

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    I was surprised by that comment too

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    And she allowed him too. I get that she's mourning but I wouldn't have went to that

  • Miany

    Nope boo...you aint on no limb. You are spot on! lol.. neaux won is checking for Tyty

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I might shed a tear ? I'm glad they were able to move on!

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    I didn't believe her.
    She still wanted to get that wedding ring and that financial security, so I cant trust what she said to the media afterward. Sounded like a bit of a clean-up job to me.
    And we know a lot of domestic violence victims will tell the cops the truth when they show up at the house, then they'll recant later and change their story... especially if the dude lays a guilt trip on them.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    He'll be a good teammate on the bench.
    Holding the towels... handing out water bottles... helpful stuff like that.

  • MystyBlu

    I read your article. I think they just mixed things up. He said he and Norma would never be again but they aren't beefing anymore. This is a new chick he married.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I like Matt, but he doesn't seem to be liked by many. It's interesting to see the comments of how people feel about him, his playing abilities, and his "cases."

  • Dkwitty

    Wow that's pretty sad if that's the happiest day of his life. He sounds like a groupie for the current Warriors squad. A far cry from his thug image. Barnes is a scrub. Better hope KD heals like wolverine. I can't stomach another Lebron championship.

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    he out 4 weeks its 6 weeks left in the season

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    nah unless the player is forcing a trade they are told after the deal is done to try to keep media leaks from happening
