Harrison Barnes usually lingers after home games.
"So let me guess this is cool cause they had to do what was best for the franchise right?"
LeBron James wants the "narrative" around player movement to change in the National Basketball Association as the Los Angeles Lakers superstar called out a double-standard after Harrison Barnes was traded by the Dallas Mavericks. "I'm ok with both honestly, truly am". "Just call a ♠️ a ♠️!"
Former UNC standouts Harrison Barnes and Justin Jackson were part of a trade between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night, just the latest in a flurry of moves ahead of the deadline.
The NBA can really be a ruthless business, and it just showed on full display on the eve of the trade deadline. Brewer claimed that James has been "transparently conniving" in possibly encouraging Anthony Davis to demand a trade from the Pelicans that ideally, at least for the New Orleans star and James himself, would result in him in them joining forces in Los Angeles. Barnes spent four seasons with the Golden State Warriors before joining the Mavericks in 2016.
Barnes started and had three points in 17 minutes in the first half.
On Wednesday, the team made another move after acquiring Kristaps Porzingis when they traded Harrison Barnes to the Sacramento Kings for Zach Randolph. And so once everybody found out about the trade, they pulled him out.
The 26-year-old Barnes, who led the Mavs in scoring the previous two seasons, is averaging 17.7 points per game this season but is shooting 41 percent from the field, the second-worst mark of his seven-year career.
From a salary cap perspective, Dallas, in effect, traded Barnes' $25 million salary next season for Jackson's $3.3 million.
