Harrison Barnes leaves the court after a game against the Hornets during which he was traded from the Mavericks to the Kings

Jason Smith is not buying the outrage and explains why this is clearly damage control or a last-gasp effort by LeBron and AD to push for a trade before tomorrow's deadline. If it weren't for insiders and social media, Barnes merely would have played the game then been informed when it was finished. But the fact the Mavericks were playing a game against the Charlotte Hornets when Barnes found out made it a bit. well, awkward.

"He's a better man than me, for sure", Nowitzki said according to ESPN.

"Everybody else would have bounced". He's just a genuinely good dude and he's obviously got bonds with some of these players here for life.

"The Kings are trading Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph to the Mavericks for Harrison Barnes, league sources tell ESPN", he reported.

The 26-year-old Barnes, who led the Mavs in scoring the previous two seasons, is averaging 17.7 points per game this season but is shooting 40.4 percent from the field, the second-worst mark of his seven-year career.

After the game, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle thanked Barnes in front of the team for "being the model professional and a great example".

With Wednesday's win over Charlotte, the Mavericks improved to 25-28 and remain 11th in the Western Conference, while Sacramento is in ninth place with a 28-26 record.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 12 points in his Dallas debut after the blockbuster deal that brought Kristaps Porzingis from the New York Knicks.

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.

We have another major National Basketball Association trade this evening, with the Dallas Mavericks shipping out small forward Harrison Barnes.
