Mavericks top Hornets 99-93 as Dallas deals Barnes to Kings

Luka Doncic Dennis Smith Jr

Sacramento Kings forward Zach Randolph has been traded, along with Justin Jackson, to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Harrison Barnes.

LeBron James wants the "narrative" around player movement to change.

The NBA trade deadline is tomorrow afternoon, so trades were obviously expected.

Trading him is one thing, but they actually trading Barnes while he was on the court and still playing for the team. I'm OK with both honestly.

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.

Dallas traded for Porzingis last week in a seven-player deal with NY that starters Dennis Smith Jr., Wesley Matthews and center DeAndre Jordan to the Knicks. Dwayne Bacon returns to Charlotte where he holds season averages of 4.6 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 10.7 minutes per game over the course of 24 appearances in his second season with the Hornets.

"He's a better man than me, for sure", Nowitzki said according to ESPN. "Everybody else would have bounced out". He thanked the Mavs on social media after the game.

Kemba Walker had 30 points and a season-high 11 rebounds for the Hornets, who got swept by Dallas after losing to the Mavericks by 38 points at home about a month ago.

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.

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.
