Kings reportedly acquire Barnes from Mavs for Justin Jackson, Zach Randolph

Wednesday's trade, which occurred roughly 17 hours before Thursday's 2 p.m. National Basketball Association trade deadline, is Dallas' second major trade in six days. "Traded this man while he was literally playing in the game and had ZERO idea", James said on his Instagram account after it was announced Barnes was traded from the Mavericks while he was playing in a game against the Hornets.

"I'm ok with both honestly, truly am", James wrote in the post.

The Sacramento Kings are closing in on a trade for Dallas Mavericks forward Harrison Barnes, according to a report from Shams Charania of Stadium.

As of Wednesday night, four former UNC players have now been traded before the deadline including Wayne Ellington and Reggie Bullock.

New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis, the centerpiece of this year's mid-season trade rumors, liked James' post along with Portland Trailblazers star guard CJ McCollum. "Every prominent player is in pursuit of a move that supposedly will change the landscape of the league, yet the Golden State Warriors have no established worthy adversary".

On Wednesday, the team made another move after acquiring Kristaps Porzingis when they traded Harrison Barnes to the Sacramento Kings for Zach Randolph.

Barnes, 26, is averaging 17.3 points and 4.3 rebounds on the season.

Barnes is no sure bet to opt-in next season.

Despite the Mavericks' treatment of the whole situation, Dallas living legend Dirk Nowitzki only had the best words for his traded teammate. That deal added the considerable 2019-20 season salaries of Hardaway ($18.1 million) and Lee ($12.7 million), seemingly inhibiting Dallas from making a significant summer acquisition.

Barnes didn't deserve this kind of treatment from Dallas.
