Harrison Barnes is often understated when it comes to speaking about himself. So the last thing he ever expected was to be viewed as a leader in the fight for change in America. He was fine doing his part without the praise. In a year that has been unpredictable in many ways, one of them has been Barnes firmly immersed in fighting for justice in ways he would not have envisioned, especially after being named to the Board of Directors for the NBA Foundation, a group that seeks to find ways all 30 NBA teams can make meaningful change.
“No chance,” Barnes said when asked if he envisioned all the things with which he is now involved. “Everything that has happened throughout this time has definitely showed me that there will be different opportunities than you could have ever imagined and things in society change so quickly. “And I’ve just been fortunate and blessed not just to be with not only great teammates but also a great organization and a great league that’s really trying to jump into the struggle and affect change.”

The National Basketball Association (NBA) and National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) today announced the NBA Foundation Board of Directors, comprised of eight representatives from the NBA Board of Governors, players and executives from the NBPA and the league office. The Foundation’s Board of Directors will provide strategic direction with respect to programming and grantmaking as well as oversee the organization’s activities, working directly with all 30 NBA teams and their governors to support and facilitate sustainable initiatives in team markets.
The inaugural board members are: · Harrison Barnes, Sacramento Kings Forward · Gayle Benson, New Orleans Pelicans Governor · Tobias Harris, Philadelphia 76ers Forward · Michael Jordan, Charlotte Hornets Chairman · Tony Ressler, Atlanta Hawks Principal Owner · Michele Roberts, NBPA Executive Director · Adam Silver, NBA Commissioner · Larry Tanenbaum, NBA Board of Governors Chairman and Toronto Raptors Governor
