Harrison Barnes Traded To The Sacramento Kings Mid-Game

And on Wednesday night, the King made sure to let us know just how ticked off he is with the National Basketball Association trade deadline a day away.

Barnes was traded while he was in the midst of the Mavericks' game against the Hornets.

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. On Wednesday, Barnes must have been the first player out of the room, gone before Rick Carlisle even finished his post-game press conference.

Trading him is one thing, but they actually trading Barnes while he was on the court and still playing for the team. "I'm ok with both honestly, truly am". "Just call a (spade) a (spade)!" he wrote. He knew there was a chance the New Orleans Pelicans would decide against immediately honoring his trade request, especially once it became apparent league-wide that he plans on signing with the Los Angeles Lakers in the summer of 2020 regardless.

Harrison Barnes usually lingers after home games. A great influence on the team, also in this community. "We're going to be much smaller".

Mavs owner Mark Cuban took to Twitter later Wednesday to salute Barnes.

According to Wojnarowski, the Kings want to sign Barnes to a long-term deal. "But just from [scouting], he's always on the scouting board".

The NBA trade deadline comes to an end Thursday at 3 p.m.

After the deals, Sacramento won't have a player on its roster over the age of 30.

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

"Look, this is madness right now, this week is just a zoo", the coach said of the period leading into the trade deadline. The cap hit for Sacramento is $24.8 million this season and $25.1 million for 2019-20.
