Matt Barnes Fined $35K for Derek Fisher Comments!

Memphis Grizzles Matt Barnes has been fined $35,000 for his comments about New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher this week.


“Matt Barnes’ comments condoning violence do not reflect who we are as a league or the character of our players,” NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Kiki VanDeWeghe said in a statement. “His words are unacceptable and entirely inconsistent with the core principles of this game and the NBA.”

Barnes, who served a two-game suspension earlier this season for an off-court altercation with Fisher, offered choice comments on the Knicks coach prior to Saturday’s game between the two teams.
