On and off the basketball court, Adia Barnes made an impact on the Seattle community. Barnes was assigned to the Storm prior to the 2002 season as a free agent and a journeywoman, having played for three WNBA teams and spent training camp with a fourth in four professional seasons. With her strong defense and hustle, Barnes worked her way into the starting lineup by the end of the 2002 season and had a career-high 10 rebounds in the Storm's critical win over Portland that keyed the first playoff berth in franchise history. Barnes started 2003 vastly improved after working on her perimeter game, making 38.7% of her 3-pointers and starting the Storm's first 16 games before tearing her left ACL against the Los Angeles Sparks on July 5. While Barnes was back on the court for 2004 and saw action in all 34 games, she was still hampered by her knee. Barnes was waived by the Storm on May 18, 2005.

Barnes has transitioned into a new role off the court as the Storm's radio color analyst on KKNW 1150 AM starting with the 2007 season. Barnes has helped the community with her foundation, Adia's Dreams in Action.
