Mavs trade Harrison Barnes mid-game, get bashed by LeBron

Mavs trade Harrison Barnes mid-game, get bashed by LeBron

That deal added the considerable 2019-20 season salaries of Hardaway ($18.1 million) and Lee ($12.7 million), seemingly inhibiting Dallas from making a significant summer acquisition.

Jackson is averaging 6.7 points, 1.3 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game in his second year with the Kings, while Randolph averaged 14.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per game last season and was never activated this year. "I got word of it during the game and so that is why he didn't play down the stretch, obviously".

The Los Angeles Lakers could look like a completely different team if a trade or two happen on Thursday before the 3:00 PM EST deadline. Barnes, who scored 10 points through the third quarter, chose to remain on the bench and support his soon-to-be-former teammates.

Following the game, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle praised Barnes as a "model pro" and "one of the most improved players in the game".


Barnes was in uniform for Dallas on Wednesday night against the visiting Charlotte Hornets at American Airlines Center when news of the deal broke.

"I am going to miss him an terrible lot", Carlisle said. The timing was agreed upon during the game, according to Schwartz, and Barnes wanted to play. Jackson, who was drafted in the first round of the 2017 National Basketball Association draft, is averaging 6.7 points. The problem was that the Mavs traded Barnes mid-game.The former National Basketball Association champion was still on the bench during their 99-93 win against the Charlotte Hornets when the news flashed on the arena monitors at some point during the 3rd quarter.

Randolph, a 37-year-old veteran center/forward, is in his 17th National Basketball Association season.
