James weighs in on Mavericks trading Barnes mid-game

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 is averaging 17.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game this season for the Mavericks and has a player option on the $25M deal following this season.

"So let me guess this is cool cause they had to do what was best for the franchise right???", he wrote. Michelle Beadle then reads LeBron James' Instagram post in which he rants about Barnes' mid-game trade. "I'm not knocking who traded him because it's a business and you have to do what you feel what's best [sic] but I just want this narrative to start to get REAL/CHANGE". I'm OK with both honestly.

James also asked people to call a spade a spade.

Davis last week demanded a trade, but the New Orleans Pelicans reportedly are refusing to play ball and not comply.

Google Cloud also drove higher expenses, mostly headcount, which rose from the third quarter by nearly 4,400 people, to 98,771. The latter figure rose to $1.328 billion from last year's $748 million while TAC rose by a percent to $7.436 billion.

Of course, Barnes wasn't actually traded during the game. The Marion, Indiana native went on to earn All-NBA Third Team honors in 2010-11 after posting at least 20 points per game in three consecutive seasons.

Despite the Mavericks' treatment of the whole situation, Dallas living legend Dirk Nowitzki only had the best words for his traded teammate. "He's a professional, so I'm sure he's going to fit in ideal".

As of Wednesday night, four former UNC players have now been traded before the deadline including Wayne Ellington and Reggie Bullock.

The Kings will use their remaining $10.5 million of cap space to acquire Barnes.

Information from ESPN's Bobby Marks was used in this report.
