Kings agree to trade for Mavericks forward Barnes

Harrison Barnes Mavs

The Mavericks agreed to send forward Harrison Barnes to the Kings in the middle of their matchup against the Hornets on Wednesday. Barnes had 10 points in the game.

"Traded this man while he was literally playing in the game and had ZERO idea", James said.

"I got word of it during the game". Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle described Barnes as a "model pro" during his postgame presser. "I am going to miss him an very bad lot". He's a special guy. He is an example for what you want your kids to be.

"Things are going to look much different on the court". "We'll miss him an very bad lot, but I believe he's going to have a great situation where he's going, and we'll just go forward from here".

Last Thursday, in a seven-player, two-draft-pick blockbuster, the Mavericks acquired Kristaps Porzingis, Tim Hardaway Jr., Trey Burke and Courtney Lee.

"Everyone is aware that there was a trade, or is a trade in the works, involving Harrison", Carlisle said. "This week has been a zoo". "That's part of the real compelling aspect of our league, and we all understand that, it's a dynamic business". He grew up in Houston.

Jackson, 23, is in his second year and has been a regular contributor off the bench, averaging 6.7 points and 2.8 rebounds. He's in the final season of his contract and is owed the remainder of his $11.7-million salary.

Through 48 appearances for Dallas this season, he averaged 17.8 points on 40.6 percent shooting from the field, along with 4.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 0.7 steals. That move, as some see it, set the stage for a new National Basketball Association era in which elite talents used their leverage to handpick preferable situations, creating a huge amount of intrigue for fans but also uncertainty and upheaval around the league.
