Erick Barkley (born February 21, 1978) is an American former professional basketball player. Born in Queens, New York, he played high school basketball at Christ the King Regional High School and the Maine Central Institute and college basketball at St. John's University.[1] He was named First Team All-Big East and an All-American honorable mention in 2000.[2]

During the 2000 NBA Draft, Barkley was selected in the first round (28th pick overall) by the Portland Trail Blazers. After two seasons with Portland, he was traded with Steve Kerr and a 2003 second-round pick to the San Antonio Spurs for Antonio Daniels, Amal McCaskill and Charles Smith on August 5, 2002.[3] The Spurs traded Barkley to the Chicago Bulls on October 26, 2002, but he was waived the same day.[4] Barkley played 27 games during his NBA career and averaged 2.9 points per game with 1.5 assists and 0.9 rebounds per game.

Barkley played for the G.S. Olympia Larissa B.C. in Larissa, Greece during the 2004–05 season until he was expelled from the league for possessing cannabis. He played his final professional season in 2011 for the Quebec Kebs of the National Basketball League of Canada. When Barkley told team management he was planning to retire due to injuries, he was persuaded to finish out the season as a player-coach.[5]

In 2014, Barkley was coaching a youth basketball game when he allegedly struck the father of an opposing player.[6] Barkley is currently an assistant coach at his high school alma mater, Christ the King Regional High School.[7]
