Michelle Beadle then reads LeBron James' Instagram post in which he rants about Barnes' mid-game trade. The 26-year-old forward was subbed out and remained on Dallas' bench for a short time before heading back to the locker room after he was informed of the move.

The NBA can really be a ruthless business, and it just showed on full display on the eve of the trade deadline. James captioned a video of Barnes.

The move must have come together quickly, because Barnes was on the court playing for the Mavericks against the Charlotte Hornets when the deal broke. "He's a better man than me", said Nowitzki, who scored eight points. "I'm ok with both honestly, truly am".

Part of the reason for James' frustration could be the backlash against Davis, after he requested a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans.

According to multiple reports, the Mavericks have reached an agreement with the Sacramento Kings to acquire Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph in exchange for Harrison Barnes.

James signed a four-year, $153.3 million contract with the Lakers this summer.

Bucks, Pistons agree to trade involving Thon Maker-Stanley Johnson, reports say
Johnson gives the Bucks, who have the NBA's best record at 39-13, another strong wing defender as they prepare for a playoff push. The 21-year-old Maker, who played his high school basketball in Orangeville, Ont., reportedly made a trade request last week.

Now in his 17th National Basketball Association season, Randolph has amassed career averages of 16.6 points (.471 FG%,.273 3pt%,.764 FT%), 9.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 31.0 minutes per game in 1,116 contests (882 starts) with the Portland Trail Blazers (2001-02 - 2006-07), New York Knicks (2007-08 - 2008-09), L.A. Clippers (part of 2008-09), Memphis Grizzlies (2009-10 - 2016-17) and Sacramento Kings (2017-18 - 2018-19).

"Look, this is madness right now", Carlisle said of the mid-game trade.

On Barnes' trade to the Kings, Mavericks head coach Rick Carlise addressed the deal post-game.

"I got word of it during the game". "I'm going to miss him an terrible lot". It was like eight minutes to go. "We'll miss him an 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". "He's been a great influence on the team and the community. He had an imprint so we're going to miss him".
