LeBron critical of Mavs' trade move amid Lakers-Pelicans stalemate

UNC Alumni in NBA: Harrison Barnes, Justin Jackson part of Kings-Mavs trade

Harrison Barnes (L) was left on the bench when he found out he'd been traded mid-game, a decision slammed by LeBron James. The two-time NBA All-Star (2010 & 2013) also won Most Improved Player Award honors in 2003-04 after raising his scoring average by almost 12 points per game.

LeBron James wants the "narrative" around player movement to change. That move, as some see it, set the stage for a new National Basketball Association era in which elite talents used their leverage to handpick preferable situations, creating a huge amount of intrigue for fans but also uncertainty and upheaval around the league.

The Dallas Mavericks are still dealing.

The post was liked by Anthony Davis, who has been at the center of trade talks for nearly two weeks since he requested to be dealt by the Pelicans.

With that pending transaction as the backdrop, James dished out a dose of player-powered reality for the National Basketball Association. "When they trade you, release, waive, cut etc. etc.it's best for them!" the four-time MVP said in his post, which received a "like" from Davis. "Just call a ♠️ a ♠️!" Potential targets include Orlando center Nikola Vucevic, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and Miami guard and Luka Doncic mentor Goran Dragic, who has a player option for next season at $19.2 million, but could decide not to opt in.

Randolph, a 37-year-old veteran center/forward, is in his 17th National Basketball Association season.

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

Mavericks veteran Dirk Nowitzki added: "I was playing in the fourth [quarter] still".

"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 didn't deserve this kind of treatment from Dallas.
