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

Harrison Barnes and the rest of the NBA received a strong reminder that basketball is a business on Wednesday when the Dallas Mavericks forward was shipped to the Sacramento Kings while he was still on the court.

Since the Dallas Mavericks were in the middle of a game against the Charlotte Hornets when the trade with the Sacramento Kings was announced, Barnes awkwardly was forced to sit in basketball purgatory for the rest of the game: warming the bench for a team he was no longer a part of.but that he was still technically a member of.

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).

Before Pierce's report, the mid-game trade of Barnes led Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to highlight what he believes is a double standard between organizations and players. "I'm ok with both honestly, truly am". "Just call a (spade) a (spade)!" he wrote.




As the Lakers struggle to facilitate a trade for wantaway New Orleans Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis, James discussed the mid-game deal involving Barnes on Instagram. The four-time MVP said players are labeled as "selfish" when they ask for a trade, but that organizations don't face the same criticism for their decisions.

The Kings sent second-year forward Justin Jackson and veteran forward/center Zach Randolph to the Mavs for Barnes. I think everybody knows how close we were. Nemanja Bjelica is the oldest and doesn't turn 31 until May. 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.

Barnes is no sure bet to opt-in next season.
