  • UNC Alumni in NBA: Harrison Barnes, Justin Jackson part of Kings-Mavs trade

The Sacramento Kings made a move on Wednesday night before the trade deadline, acquiring Harrison Barnes from the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Zach Randolph and Justin Jackson. The problem was that the Mavs traded Barnes mid-game.The former National Basketball Association champion was still on the bench during their 99-93 win against the Charlotte Hornets when the news flashed on the arena monitors at some point during the 3rd quarter.

In his third season in Dallas, Barnes is averaging 17.8 points, 1.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game.

His caption read, "So let me guess this is cool cause they had to do what was best for the franchise right???" "Traded this man while he was literally playing in the game and had ZERO idea".

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

Part of the reason for James' frustration could be the backlash against Davis, after he requested a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans.

Across the city, the feeling was the same: triumph and New England pride. As for a potential opponent, keep an eye on the Chiefs or Steelers.

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. "When a player gets traded, it's they was doing what's best for the franchise".

"I will never forget how the incredible fans in this city held it down at AAC every game, win or lose. He's a professional, so I'm sure he's going to fit in flawless".

The trade deadline has, somehow, still not passed. They project to have $30 million in room for 2019-20, and that number could increase to $40 million if Dwight Powell opts out of his contract.

Information from ESPN's Bobby Marks was used in this report.
