Davis will not sign an extension with New Orleans and wants to be traded, agent Rich Paul told ESPN in late January. "That's really the first time I've witnessed it", said of seeing someone traded during a game. He claimed to be "ok with both" teams and players acting in their respective interests, and just wanted to "call a spade a spade", using spade symbols in his caption.

The Kings sent second-year forward Justin Jackson and veteran forward/center Zach Randolph to the Mavs for Barnes. The Marion, Indiana native went on to earn All-NBA Third Team honors in 2010-11 after posting at least 20 points per game in three consecutive seasons.

LeBron James highlighted the hypocrisy between a team trading a player and a player asking for a trade in an Instagram post about Harrison Barnes getting traded to the Sacramento Kings.

Barnes is no sure bet to opt-in next season.

The Mavericks now have $13.1 million in room to use at the trade deadline or up until June 30.

"With this trade now, a lot of things are in play", Carlisle said, noting that the starting lineup will be fluid and players will be looked at in positions they don't ordinarily play.

Barnes was in uniform for Dallas on Wednesday night against the visiting Charlotte Hornets at American Airlines Center when news of the deal broke.
