Charles Wade Barkley Jr., (born February 20, 1963) commonly referred to as Sir Charles or Charles Barkley, is an American retired basketball player who is currently an analyst on the television program Inside the NBA . Nicknamed Chuck, he was widely regarded as one of the best power forwards in NBA history. He played 15 seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA) with both the Philadelphia 76ers and the Phoenix Suns , winning the Most Valuable Player Award in 1991 and being voted into 11 All-Star Games.
Career Earnings Overview
How Much Is Charles Barkley’s Basketball Salary? : We mentioned earlier that we don’t have an exact figure for how much he makes, but his salary is estimated to be at least $1 million per year. According to Spotrac, a sports contract website, as of January 2019 he is still making over $1 million per year playing basketball. His contract with TNT also pays him over $100,000 per year so it’s possible that his total yearly income is well over $2 million. But what about past earnings?

Salary & Contracts
It’s difficult to pinpoint how much money an athlete makes, and basketball is no exception. Take Charles Barkley, for example: He signed his first contract with $750,000 and could have made as much as $1 million if he achieved all incentives. Considering that at that time he was considered one of the best players in college history, according to Sports Illustrated , his salary wasn’t bad. But when you see that LeBron James just signed a 3-year deal worth $100 million with Cleveland Cavaliers and Kobe Bryant will make over $30 million next season , it’s easy to understand why athletes are often unhappy with their salaries.
Basketball Wives Earnings
While there’s no exact figure on how much these women make each season, Basketball Wives stars receive a small fee for every episode they appear in and then negotiated endorsement deals. We estimate that one of these ladies can bring in anywhere from $30K to $1 million per season. How did we come up with that number? In our research, we found that Shaunie O’Neal (wife of Shaquille O’Neal) made an estimated $65,000 per episode while Jackie Christie (former wife of ex-Knicks star and current TV analyst Doug Christie) made just under $100K per season back in 2014.
Charles Barkley has a few businesses that have nothing to do with basketball, including car dealerships, restaurants and a shoe company. His biggest earning business outside of basketball is his restaurant. The restaurant started in 1996 in Scottsdale, Arizona, called Hoopla. He now has six locations in Arizona and Nevada. In 1995 Charles was part owner of an Arena Football League franchise called the Arizona Rattlers. The team won Arena Bowl championships in 1994 and 1997 before selling it’s controlling interest to Mark Ein (owner of Washington D.C.’s Washington Sports club). The team was sold in 2005 for more than $8 million dollars.
Charles Barkley currently earns $1.8 million per year (2016–2017). The retired basketball player has a net worth of $30 million as of January 2018, but we estimate his net worth at $600,000 in 2021. This is still a large sum of money, and we know people who would be thrilled to have that amount. But it’s not nearly what you might think it is when you look at how much money he made during his playing days.
