It’s safe to say the rest of the basketball world knew about Harrison Barnes being traded before he did. He was kind of busy when news of the trade broke.
In fact, Barnes was in the middle of a game when the Dallas Mavericks traded him to the Sacramento Kings for Zach Randolph and Justin Jackson.

The 26-year-old Barnes didn’t play in the fourth quarter and finished the game with 10-points.
For some reason the mid-game trade didn’t sit well with LeBron James and he decided to speak out against the move on social media.
So let me guess this is cool cause they had to do what was best for the franchise right??? Traded this man while he was literally playing in the game and had ZERO idea. I’m not knocking who traded him because it’s a business and you have to do what you feel what’s best but I just want this narrative to start to get REAL/CHANGE and not when a player wants to be traded or leaves a Franchise that he’s a selfish/ungrateful player but when they trade you, release , waive, cut etc etc it’s best for them! I’m ok with both honestly, truly am. Just call a ♠️ a ♠️!!
This is the same guy who is trying to get half of his teammates traded so he can play with Anthony Davis right? Just checking.
For the record, Barnes didn’t seem too concerned with the move and thanked Dallas for the two and half years he spent with them.
