Bet on Charles Barkley Next Job

Following Game 4 of the NBA Finals last Friday, Charles Barkley announced that he will retire from broadcasting after this season.


Most think that Barkley will be swooned by another network, should TNT lose its NBA rights to another network or a streaming service, and ultimately "un-retire" once his retirement is official.

Not according to him, however.

"I ain't going nowhere other than TNT," Barkley, 61, said on NBATV after the Dallas Mavericks' Game 4 victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday night. "But I have made the decision that, no matter what happens, next year is going to be my last year on television. And I just want to say thank you to my NBA family. You guys have been great to me. My heart is full with joy and gratitude."

BetOnline has come up with a few props surrounding Barkley's future, including his next line of work.

And the odds for him to be back in a studio regularly as a host next season (not as a guest), aren't all that long (2/1).

Barkley next job odds are subject to change and will be updated in real-time.
