Warriors' Matt Barnes avoids criminal charges in assault case

 

 

Golden State Warriors forward Matt Barnes avoided criminal charges in his assault case, pleading guilty on Tuesday morning to disorderly conduct -- a violation -- and was required to perform 10 days of community service as part of the agreement, according to a spokesperson for the Manhattan District Attorney's office.

 

Barnes' case was adjourned until August 29 for a status update.

 

"He was cleared of all criminal charges and agreed to a disorderly violation," said Alex Spiro, Barnes' lawyer.

 

The 36-year-old forward originally faced third-degree assault charges, a misdemeanor, after police said he was involved in a Dec. 5 altercation at Avenue, a bar in Manhattan. Barnes was also charged with obstruction of breathing. A related civil suit has been filed against Barnes and former teammate DeMarcus Cousins in a New York District Court by two plaintiffs, Jasmine Besiso and Myrone Powell. The lawsuit alleges that Barnes grabbed Besiso by her neck and began choking her at approximately 3 a.m. after a fight broke out in the VIP section of the club.

 

Cousins -- now with the New Orleans Pelicans -- is alleged to have punched Powell in the face after Powell had attempted to help Besiso, while Barnes is alleged to have elbowed Besiso in the face, knocking her unconscious.

 

Cousins was cleared of any criminal wrongdoing and will not face charges following an NYPD investigation that concluded last week.

Warriors show off softball skills during celebrity game for charity

 

 

Fresh off winning the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena earlier this month, several members of the Golden State Warriors took their athletic talents across the parking lot for a celebrity softball game at the Oakland Coliseum.

 

Warriors center JaVale McGee hosted the charity event benefiting his #Juglife Foundation, which promotes a healthy lifestyle by encouraging everyone to drink more water.

 

Finals MVP Kevin Durant (and his cap), Klay ThompsonDraymond GreenAndre IguodalaZaza PachuliaMatt BarnesIan ClarkShaun Livingston and Patrick McCaw were the other Golden State players who participated in Saturday's afternoon affair. Model Amber Rose and Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch also showed off their softball skills.

 

Barnes, Clark and Iguodala each did their best Oakland Athletics impersonations, launching home runs over the makeshift fence in the outfield. Although their hits didn't clear the Coliseum's actual wall, it didn't matter, because the ensuing home run celebrations stole the show.

After the game -- a 19-15 victory for Green's team over McGee's team -- Lynch jokingly confronted the Warriors' defensive anchor about failing to go deep like his teammates.

javalemcgeeThank u dub nation and Oakland for the support and a great time! Blessings! #juglifewater

 

 

McGee, who is set to become a free agent on July 1, expressed his desire to return to the Warriors during an interview amid the festivities.
