The NBA has fined Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes for his comments 'condoning violence'



NBA vice president for basketball operations Kiki VanDeWeghe says in a statement: 'Matt Barnes' comments condoning violence do not reflect who we are as a league or the character of our players. His words are unacceptable and entirely inconsistent with the core principles of this game and the NBA.'

According to sources, Barnes said at the Grizzlies' pregame shootaround: 'Violence is never the answer, but sometimes it is.'
