Harrison Barnes Traded To The Sacramento Kings Mid-Game

Harrison Barnes Traded To The Sacramento Kings Mid-Game

LeBron James called out the timing of the trade, suggesting teams trading players were treated differently from players requesting trades. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski then tweeted, "The Kings are trading Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph to the Mavericks for Harrison Barnes, league sources tell ESPN". James wrote. "Traded this man while he was literally playing in the game and had ZERO idea".

The Barnes deal came on the eve of the National Basketball Association trade deadline and a week after Dallas' blockbuster with the New York Knicks to acquire Kristaps Porzingis. It was a weird scene though seeing a player get traded in the middle of the game, watching his former teammates on the Mavs sideline minutes after finding out he was now a member of a different franchise. Based on Barnes' play so far this year, there are a lot of players that could fit next to those two guys a lot better than HB can. Barnes remained on the bench to cheer on the Mavs for the rest of the contest.

The 26-year-old is averaging 17.8 points and 4.3 rebounds in 48 appearances this season. He will join a Sacramento team (28-26) on the cusp of a playoff spot in the Western Conference. "But just from [scouting], he's always on the scouting board".

After the deals, Sacramento won't have a player on its roster over the age of 30.

Along with that, if Dallas wants any ounce of flexibility for free agency this summer, it will have to come with a Barnes and/or Dwight Powell move to clear up over $35 million in cap space.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 12 points in his Dallas debut after the blockbuster deal that brought Kristaps Porzingis from the New York Knicks. He has a $25.1-million player option for 2019-20.
