Brent Barry Playing career

Brent Barry was selected by the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the 1995 NBA draft but was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers on draft night in 4-player trade with Rodney Rogers for the No. 2 overall pick in the draft and Randy Woods. Barry was generally considered a good passer and had three seasons where he averaged more than 5 assists per game.

Barry was also a strong three-point shooter; he currently ranks 13th all-time in career three-point field goals made and shot 40% from behind the arc for his career. These two strengths, combined with Barry’s 6’7″ frame, allowed him to play a variety of positions, including point guard, shooting guard, and small forward; because he was taller than most traditional point guards, he was often considered a point forward when he was running the offense. He was on the San Antonio Spurs championship teams in 2005 and 2007.

Barry won the Slam Dunk Contest in the NBA All-Star Weekend in 1996 with a Julius Erving-inspired slam dunk in which he took off from the free throw line to sail in and dunk one-handed. He was the first caucasian player to win the competition.

Los Angeles Clippers (1995–1998)

After being drafted by the Denver Nuggets, Barry was traded immediately to the Los Angeles Clippers. In his rookie season, Brent made 123 3-pointers, which broke the current rookie record. There Brent would average 10.4 ppg and 38% 3-pt field goal in 179 games.

In his second season, he and the Clippers attempted a playoff run where Brent would average 11.7 ppg, his highest in the postseason. The Clippers only played in 3 games (one series; 1996-1997) during the postseason while Barry was there.

Miami Heat (1998)

Barry was traded to the Miami Heat the day before the February 20 trade deadline from Los Angeles for Isaac Austin. In Miami, Barry would only play 17 games, not starting any of the games, averaging only 4.1 ppg.

Chicago Bulls (1999)

Barry signed with the Bulls on January 25, 1999, and signed a 6-year $27 million contract. After sustaining an injury, he played only 37 of the 50 games played that season, averaging 11.1 ppg. Failing to fill the void of a Jordan-less Bulls, the team traded Brent for Hersey Hawkins and James Cotton from Seattle on August 12, 1999.

Seattle SuperSonics (1999–2004)

Brent spent 4 seasons with the Seattle SuperSonics. Brent would begin his Seattle career as a back-up for fellow Oregon State alumnus Gary Payton. He would eventually move to play the point position as a starter and filled in when needed as a small forward.

There he would average 11.2 ppg, make 669 3-point shots, and start the majority of his NBA career (296 out of 328 games), and total 4,107 points. In Seattle, he would play 10 postseason games, starting 8 of those, the most in his career thus far.

San Antonio Spurs (2004–2008)

In the summer of 2004, Barry was signed as a free agent by the San Antonio Spurs, where he spent most of the season as a backup. After losing their first playoff game to the Denver Nuggets in the 2005 NBA Playoffs, San Antonio inserted Barry into the starting lineup.

The Spurs’ new lineup helped them beat the Nuggets in the series four games to one. Later in those same playoffs, Barry earned his first championship ring when the Spurs defeated the Detroit Pistons in the 2005 NBA Finals.

Brent and his father, Rick Barry, are the second father-son duo to each win an NBA Championship as a player; the first was Matt Guokas, Sr. and his son Matt Guokas, Jr. The only other father-son duos are Bill Walton and his son Luke Walton, and Mychal Thompson and his son Klay Thompson.

In June 2007, he won his second NBA championship ring when the Spurs swept the Cleveland Cavaliers 4–0.

In January 2008, Barry tore his right calf muscle. On February 20, 2008, (not too long after his injury) Barry, along with Francisco Elson and a 2009 first round draft pick, were traded by the San Antonio Spurs back to the Seattle SuperSonics in exchange for forwarding/center Kurt Thomas.

Barry was waived the following day by the Sonics. After a mandatory 30-day waiting period, he re-signed with San Antonio on March 24, 2008, for 1 year with the possibility for the 2009–2010 season at Veteran Minimum.

Coming off of injury Barry did not see very much playing time in the first 2 rounds of the 2008 NBA Playoffs. He shone against the Lakers in the Western Conference finals,  getting 23 points in Game 4, with a controversial no-call foul with 2 seconds on the clock. The Spurs would lose the series in 5 games, however.

San Antonio provided Barry with the most playoff experience (71 games) of his career. He totaled 356 3-point shots made and 1,888 points.

Houston Rockets (2008–2009)

Barry opted out of his contract and became a free agent on July 1, 2008. On July 10, Barry signed a 2-year contract with the Houston Rockets, becoming the third member of the family to join the franchise.

His father, Rick, ended his career playing two seasons with the Rockets (1978–1980) and his older brother, Jon, also finished his career with the Rockets, playing from 2004 to 06. Financial terms were not released.

On October 23, 2009, Brent Barry’s career ended when he was cut by the Rockets at the end of training camp, leading Barry to later remark that “all the Barrys were buried in Houston”.

Brent Barry Post-playing career

In 2013, Barry began making regular appearances on NBA TV’s The Starters in his own segment: “The Bone Zone”. He was a fill-in analyst for the NBA on TNT coverage and was a play-by-play announcer for their Players Only broadcast starting in 2016.

 He was partnered with Ian Eagle for TNT’s coverage of the 2018 NBA Playoffs. In 2018, Barry joined the San Antonio Spurs’ front office as their vice president of basketball operations.
