Mavs traded Barnes while he played

The Mavericks have waived Zach Randolph two days after acquiring the forward while sending Harrison Barnes to Sacramento in a trade created to give Dallas salary-cap relief. Shortly afterward, Anthony Davis was quick to like LeBron James' social media post calling out the hypocrisy of judging players for wanting to be traded.

In what is quickly becoming a trade deadline of insanity, the Sacramento Kings have finally traded for the big wing they've coveted for months. I'm ok with both honestly, truly am.

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.

But Walker, who scored 22 in the first half, went scoreless in the third quarter before scoring eight of Charlotte's first 10 points in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 81 with 8:05 to go.

Of course, Barnes wasn't actually traded during the game.

PSG beat Bordeaux 1-0 to increase its lead in the French league to 13 points over second-placed Lille, which plays on Sunday. Tuchel's side will also be missing Brazil striker Neymar, who has been ruled out with a foot injury .

"He's a better man than me, for sure", Nowitzki said according to ESPN.

Randolph and young forward Justin Jackson were sent to the Mavericks in a deal that came together while Barnes was playing for Dallas in a 99-93 win over Charlotte on Wednesday.

"Everybody else would have bounced". He is averaging 6.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game this season for Sacramento. He's just a genuinely good dude and he's obviously got bonds with some of these players here for life.

Next season, the Mavericks will owe a combined $31 million to Courtney Lee and Tim Hardaway Jr, who they acquired last week in the trade that took Kristaps Porzingis to Dallas.
