Harrison Barnes Traded To The Sacramento Kings Mid-Game

Earlier on Wednesday we rolled out our NBA Trade Deadline primer on which former University of North Carolina Tar Heels players could be on the move before Thursday afternoon.

A seven-year National Basketball Association veteran, member of the 2015 Golden State Warriors championship team and 2016 Gold Medalist in the Rio Olympics as part of Team USA, Barnes has accrued career averages of 13.5 points (.446 FG%,.371 3pt%,.795 FT%), 4.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 30.6 minutes per contest through 512 games (450 starts) with Golden State (2012-13 - 2015-16) and Dallas (2016-17 - 2018-19). "I'm ok with both honestly, truly am". "Just call a ♠️ a ♠️!", wrote James on Instagram.

Dallas, who acquired Kristaps Porzingis in a trade last week, shipped Barnes to the Kings exchange for Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph, according to The Athletic.

The Kings have been active in the lead-up to the deadline, also agreeing Wednesday to acquire Alec Burks from the Cleveland Cavaliers as part of a three-way deal with the Houston Rockets.

James' post was liked by Anthony Davis. 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".

Social media and children's mental health
Following the shooting, students met with legislators to discuss increasing mental health services to reduce school violence, according to the SCHA-MI.

Jennifer Lawrence is engaged to Cooke Maroney
People magazine reported in June 2018 that Lawrence was dating Maroney, who is the director of an art gallery in New York City. Neither her manager or a spokesperson with her public relations firm were immediately available for comment early Wednesday.

Weather Authority: Rain and freezing rain tonight into Monday
As cold air moves in Wednesday night into Thursday morning any precipitation transitions to snow albeit not much accumulation. The National Weather Service in Flagstaff expects a combination of rain and snow with snow levels close to 6,500 feet.

James thinks it's hypocritical for fans to have no problem with teams making moves like this to do what's best for them while players get negative publicity for demanding a trade to improve their situation.

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

From a salary cap perspective, Dallas, in effect, traded Barnes' $25 million salary next season for Jackson's $3.3 million.

"Everybody else would have bounced out", declared the 40-year-old forward, in his 21st year in Dallas, adding of Barnes, "He's a genuinely good dude, he's obviously got bonds with some of the players here for life, and that's the kind of guy he is".
