Signed with the Golden State Warriors for two years 2006-08, where he averaged 9.8 and 6.7 points per game, his highest ppg during that time of his career.

After a year with the Suns, he went to Orlando for one season. Averaging 8.8 points per game, until he was traded again to another team.

Barnes then signed with the L.A. Lakers, spent two seasons as a role player, he averaged 6.7 and 7.8 points in Lakers uniform.

He was traded again and landed to the Clippers, he spent three years and had his career-highs with the Clippers. He was consistent throughout his stint with them, after averaging 10.3, 9.9 and 10.1 points for three seasons.
