NBA Star Matt Barnes Accused of Choking Woman in NYC Nightclub

EXCLUSIVE

Sacramento Kings star Matt Barnes is wanted by NYPD for questioning after he allegedly choked a woman inside a nightclub early Monday morning -- and TMZ Sports got video of him right after the incident.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops got a 911 call to Avenue Nightclub after midnight, reporting a man assaulting 2 women and another man. We're told things got physical when Barnes allegedly choked one woman during an argument -- and when 2 other people tried to intervene ... he punched both of them.

In the video, Matt and his teammate, DeMarcus Cousins, are talking about the fight. Cousins is clearly heard saying, "I hit hit the s*** out this ni***!" 

Barnes fled the scene before cops showed up. The Kings were in town to play the Knicks on Sunday. They lost.

Cops are investigating and looking for Barnes.
