Charles Barkley ends talks with LIV Golf, staying with Turner

Jul 29, 2022

NBA Hall of Famer and television analyst Charles Barkley will not be joining LIV Golf as a broadcaster after entertaining the idea over the past few weeks, according to The New York Post.

Barkley was rumored to be considering a move to LIV Golf, which could have impacted his current role as an analyst on TNT’s "Inside the NBA."

"I want to thank Greg Norman and LIV for their interest in me," Barkley said in a phone interview, according to The Post. "I wish those guys great success and nothing but the best. But, in my best interest, and being fair to Turner — because Turner and basketball have given me every single thing in my life — It is best for me to move on, and I’m staying with Turner for the rest of my TV career."
