LeBron strongly reacts to Mavs' Barnes being traded mid-game

  • LeBron James calls out Mavericks other NBA teams over Harrison Barnes trade on Instagram

The forward is a scorer (17.8 ppg this season) but an extremely inefficient one (40.6 percent from the field, ugh) who isn't necessarily known for his defense. Pierce provides some insight into why Barnes potentially chose to play vs. the Charlotte Hornets amidst trade rumors while Windhorst explains why the trade deadline has become so fast-paced in recent years. He didn't play the fourth quarter and finished the game with 10 points in 26 minutes.

Whilst he didn't appear to be too unhappy about the move, the same could not be said for Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron. The 34-year-old James took issue with the narrative that emerged as a result of the deal.

A seven-year National Basketball Association veteran, member of the 2015 Golden State Warriors championship team and 2016 Gold Medalist in the Rio Olympics as part of Team USA, Barnes has accrued career averages of 13.5 points (.446 FG%,.371 3pt%,.795 FT%), 4.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 30.6 minutes per contest through 512 games (450 starts) with Golden State (2012-13 - 2015-16) and Dallas (2016-17 - 2018-19). The two-time NBA All-Star (2010 & 2013) also won Most Improved Player Award honors in 2003-04 after raising his scoring average by almost 12 points per game. Jackson, who was drafted in the first round of the 2017 National Basketball Association draft, is averaging 6.7 points. Barnes will likely slot into the open starting forward spot in the Kings' lineup as they make a push for the playoffs over the next couple of months. Well, it's even worse to be on the court in the middle of the game, when the trade talk first leaks.

Barnes owns a player option for 2019-20, and the Mavericks need to clear space for a max contract offer for Kristaps Porzingis, so the move is not a surprise. It's also possible Barnes could decline that option, in favor of a long-term deal that would keep him in Sacramento, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe.
