LeBron James didn't like how Harrison Barnes trade went down

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. Pierce provides some insight into why Barnes potentially chose to play vs. the Charlotte Hornets amidst trade rumors while Windhorst explains why the trade deadline has become so fast-paced in recent years.

As Barnes was shown sitting on the bench on the game's telecast, some Internet sleuths were trying to pinpoint the moment when he learned that he was no longer a member of the team whose uniform he was wearing.

James went on to write that he saw a double standard with how people react to players changing teams in free agency or requesting trades - often calling them selfish - compared to their reactions when franchises ship out their own players. "I'm ok with both honestly, truly am".

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.

Harrison Barnes lived out most National Basketball Association players' worst nightmare on Wednesday night. Mark Cuban owes the man an apology.

As much as the franchise valued his 17.8 points and 4.3 rebounds per game this season, it clearly coveted salary cap flexibility even more.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Kings are planning to make a long-term play for Barnes, who has a $25 million player option for the 2019-20 season. He will join a Sacramento team (28-26) on the cusp of a playoff spot in the Western Conference. "I know that firsthand".

On the screen, it was displayed that he had been sent to Sacramento by the Mavs.

Barnes left the arena without speaking to reporters, but he subsequently posted a message thanking the Mavs' organization and fans "who have made Dallas feel like home for last 2.5 seasons!" The small forward has an 8 percent trade bonus in his contract valued at $686,443 (as of Thursday).
