Charles Barkley is none of those things, but apparently is interested in the opening for Philadelphia 76ersGM with Rod Thorn retiring. From CBS Philly:
94WIP’s Anthony Gargano is reporting that Charles Barkley would be interesting in becoming the new Sixers general manager. Gargano asked Barkley via text message if he’d be interested in being the Sixers GM, and Barkley responded “yes sir.”

Barkley has no experience in managing an NBA team. This doesn't exclude him from the position. Take a look around the league and that's pretty easy to see. He would be a big-name acquisition to instill some excitement in the team, but it's a pretty risk bringing him on board.
The Sixers, meanwhile, are interviewing a pretty solid host of candidates for the position. Barkley might be worth an interview for PR's sake, but don't count on seeing Barkley explaining draft day deals any time soon.
