Charles Barkley’s Net Worth in 2021 (estimate): $50 Million

Charles Barkley’s net worth in 2021 to be at around $50 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Born and raised in Leeds, Alabama, Barkley did not garner a lot of attention from colleges.

Charles Barkley eventually joined Auburn University to play college basketball.

Despite his relatively small frame of 6’6, Barkley played the center position for the Tigers.

Barkley racked up numerous awards during his three-year college career. He was named the SEC Tournament MVP and Player of the Year in 1984 as well as being named to multiple All-SEC teams.

Barkley declared for the 1984 NBA Draft and he was selected with the 5th overall pick by the defending champions Philadelphia 76ers. He joins a stacked team of Julius Erving, Maurice Cheeks, and Moses Malone.

Charles Barkley averaged 14 points and 8.6 rebounds en route to an NBA All-Rookie First Team selection.

Nicknamed “The Round Mound of Rebound”, Barkley led the league in rebounds in the 1986-1987 season with 14.6 rebounds per game. In the same season, he was also named to his first-ever NBA All-Star Game.

After 8 seasons in Philadelphia, Barkley requested a trade after the Sixers failed to make the playoffs in the 1991-1992 season.

Initially, Barkley was supposed to be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. However, the Sixers retracted the deal and they ended up trading Barkley to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Jeff Hornacek, Tim Perry, and Andrew Lang.

After the trade, Barkley signed a five-year contract extension with the Suns worth $18.9 million.

In his first season with the Suns, Barkley averaged 25.6 points, 12.2 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game. Barkley led the team to a 62-20 record and he was named the 1993 NBA MVP.

Barkley and the Suns extended their hot streak as they advance to the NBA Finals to face Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls.

Unfortunately, the Suns couldn’t keep up with the Bulls as they lost in six games.

Despite struggling with multiple back-related injuries, Barkley still was a star for the Suns. He still averaged more than 20 points and 10 rebounds a game all while being named to multiple All-Star and All-NBA teams.

Before the start of the 1996 NBA season, Barkley was traded to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Chucky Brown, Mark Bryant, Sam Cassell and Robert Horry.

In his final years in the NBA with the Rockets, Barkley was still plagued by multiple injuries.

In what would be his final year in the NBA during the 1999-2000 NBA season, Barkley suffered an injury against the Sixers. However, Barkley refused it to be the last image of his career.

In a couple of months, Barkley returned for one final game against the Vancouver Grizzlies where he scored his last basket on a trademark putback after an offensive rebound to seal his 16-year NBA career.

"I can't explain what tonight meant," Barkley said. "I did it for me. I've won and lost a lot of games, but the last memory I had was being carried off the court. I couldn't get over the mental block of being carried off the court. It was important psychologically to walk off the court on my own."

Spotrac estimates Charles Barkley’s career earnings from his NBA salary to be around $40,608,000.

During his playing career, Barkley sponsored brands like Nike, Coca Cola, and McDonald’s.

Since his retirement in 2000, Barkley has served as a studio analyst for TNT. He is part of the widely-known “Inside the NBA” crew with Shaquille O’Neal, Ernie Johnson, and Kenny Smith.

Barkley has won four Sports Emmy Awards for Outstanding Studio Analyst for his work on TNT.

However, Barkley said that he plans to retire from being an analyst once he turns 60 years old, among other reasons.

His reported salary with TNT is around $6 million per year.

Aside from his multiple TV appearances, Charles Barkley was featured in several video games like Barkley Shut Up and Jam! which was released in 1994.

Unfortunately, his likeness cannot be used or seen in the popular basketball simulation game NBA 2K.

The NBA 2k series includes the TNT crew of Shaquille O’Neal, Ernie Johnson, and Kenny Smith giving half-time and post-game analysis.

Barkley opts not to let the game use his likeness as a protest for the company not paying the NBPA any residuals.

“Unless they give the retired players x-amount of money they cannot use my likeness,” said Barkley during an interview with Scoop B Radio. “And, I think I’m not even going to think about that anymore. They’re gonna give some money to the retired players, or they’ll never be able to use my likeness, period.”

However, Barkley can be used in the game as part of the 1992 USA “Dream Team” in the 2K13 and 2K17 versions of the game.
