National Basketball Association trade deadline: LeBron James calls out loyalty double standard, again

Harrison Barnes Mavs

Wednesday's trade, which occurred roughly 17 hours before Thursday's 2 p.m. National Basketball Association trade deadline, is Dallas' second major trade in six days.

James posted a video of Barnes's reaction and wrote: "So let me guess this is cool cause they had to do what was best for the franchise right???" He was informed of the trade and didn't return to the game, though he remained on the bench and cheered his ex-teammates to a 99-93 victory. I'm OK with both honestly.

James also asked people to call a spade a spade.

The Dallas Mavericks are making money moves in 2019.

As of Wednesday night, four former UNC players have now been traded before the deadline including Wayne Ellington and Reggie Bullock. The Lakers star said Wednesday that he wanted to change the "narrative" that a player who "wants to be traded or leaves a Franchise" is "selfish/ungrateful". By all accounts, Barnes was a class act and has been a good player for years, but his contract had become an inconvenience so the Mavericks jettisoned him.

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

National Basketball Association veteran Harrison Barnes looked just as shocked as everyone else when he learned during the middle of the game against the Charlotte Hornets that he was being traded to the Sacramento Kings. He averaged 14.5 points and 6.7 rebounds in 25 minutes a game last season but has been a healthy inactive all this season. The Mavericks got Zach Randolph and Justin Jackson in the trade.

The deal has significant financial ramifications for Dallas, as it positions the Mavs to be aggressive in free agency this summer, despite taking on the combined $31 million in salary owed next season to Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee in the Porzingis deal.
