LeBron James: Lakers star posts FURIOUS trade message on Instagram

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

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

Harrison Barnes is on his way to Sacramento as the Kings and Mavericks agreed to a deal on Wednesday night to send the veteran wing to help Sacramento in the playoff hunt. Barnes had 10 points in the game.

"So let me guess this is cool cause they had to do what was best for the franchise right???" Michelle Beadle then reads LeBron James' Instagram post in which he rants about Barnes' mid-game trade. I'm OK with both honestly.

"Just call a spade a spade!"

The post was liked by Anthony Davis, who has been at the center of trade talks for nearly two weeks since he requested to be dealt by the Pelicans.

The Mavericks informed Barnes and his agent, Jeff Schwartz, that a trade might be in the works, but the forward made a decision to play against Charlotte anyway, according to former Boston Celtics great Paul Pierce and the New York Times' Marc Stein.

Dallas, who acquired Kristaps Porzingis in a trade last week, shipped Barnes to the Kings exchange for Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph, according to The Athletic.

"I had a chance to speak to him before everyone got in the locker room [after the game] and thanked him for over two-and-a-half great years of being a model pro and being one of the most improved players in the game. I know that firsthand". "He's a professional, so I'm sure he's going to fit in flawless".

The Lakers have reportedly been trying to acquire him before Thursday's deadline, while the Boston Celtics are also believed to be interested.

The trade deadline has, somehow, still not passed. The cap hit for Sacramento is $24.8 million this season and $25.1 million for 2019-20.
