King James is Using Harrison Barnes as a Pawn

King James is Using Harrison Barnes as a Pawn

With less than 24 hours until trade deadline, the former Golden State Warrior star was enjoying himself on the court, posting a cool 10 points for the Mavs in their 99-930 win over the Hornets before he was completely blindsided.

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

The Dallas Mavericks traded Harrison Barnes to the Sacramento Kings in the middle of their game against the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night, but it appears Barnes was aware of that possibility beforehand. Trey Burke went scoreless in four minutes while Courtney Lee didn't play.

The makeover of the Mavericks continued even as parts of the blockbuster trade that brought Kristaps Porzingis from the New York Knicks were making their Dallas debuts.

Dallas will be getting a couple of players back for Barnes, though the trade was mostly made to free up cap space for this summer, when the Mavericks will be pursuing top free agents.

"He's a better man than me", said Nowitzki, who scored eight points.

Randolph has averaged 16.6 points and 9.1 rebounds in 17 seasons with five teams. Marvin Williams, Nicolas Batum, Bismack Biyombo and Jeremy Lamb combined for 36 points on 14-of-37 shooting. "Everybody else would have bounced out".

Dorian Finney-Smith recorded his second career double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Maxi Kleber and Dwight Powell each had 11. He's just a generally good dude. Jackson was active for Friday night's game against Milwaukee.
