Renauld N. Barrios, better known as Sonny Barrios, is the seventh commissioner of the Philippine Basketball Association. Before serving as commissioner, he took on the role in an acting capacity on August 2007 when his predecessor Noli Eala resigned from his office after being disbarred by the Supreme Court. He accepted his election as the commissioner on January 24, 2008 after a deadlock ensued between the league's governors that supported Atty. Chito Salud and Lambert Ramos. The board instead named Barrios as the commissioner.[1][2]

On August 2010, it is announced that he will be replaced by deputy commissioner Chito Salud. The official turnover ceremony took place on August 26 at the PBA office.[3]

Barrios was later named as the executive director of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas, the country's national basketball federation, on March 31, 2011.
