If Charles Barkley leaves Turner Sports for a media role with LIV Golf, he will do so while receiving a signifcant raise.
Barkley is currently an employee of Turner Sports and we’ve seen him cover the NBA on TNT and NCAA Tournament on CBS. Should he take his talents away, he’ll be making so much more than what he has left on his current deal.
Andrew Marchand of the New York Post recently reported that Chuck has three more years and $30 million remaining on the Hall of Famer’s contract.
It’s unclear if Barkley’s future decision with LIV Golf will impact his employment at Turner Sports.
“In a perfect scenario, I would love to do both,” Barkley told The Post. “I don’t know how Turner’s sponsors are going to feel about it. I know there is going to be some blowback.”
Barkley is fresh off a meeting with LIV CEO Greg Norman.
