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

Adjust Comment Print

He did not play in the second half and it was unclear whether he knew about the pending trade while sitting on the Mavs' bench.

LeBron James wants the "narrative" around player movement to change.

The one thing LeBron is missing is that this is a fan-driven league.

That means Dutchman Janssen, however, will not be available for selection against Borussia Dortmund in the last 16, despite Pochettino returning him to his Premier League plans after a failed exit in January.

Anthony Davis is now trying to get out of the New Orleans Pelicans with 18 months left on his deal, with James's Los Angeles Lakers bidding hard for the All-Star. James is at the forefront of turning the National Basketball Association into a league where transactions are player-driven, but players still face criticism for trying to use that power. "Just call [a spade a spade]!"

James signed a four-year, $153.3 million contract with the Lakers this summer. The former North Carolina standout grew up in Houston and has appeared in 120 career National Basketball Association games (44 starts) since the Kings selected him with the No. 15 overall pick in 2017. But obviously, at that point, Barnes coming out of the game meant more than that.

"He is a special guy", Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said.

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

"Traded this man while he was literally playing in the game and had ZERO idea", James said on his Instagram account after it was announced Barnes was traded from the Mavericks while he was playing in a game against the Hornets.

Mavericks veteran Dirk Nowitzki added: "I was playing in the fourth [quarter] still". He has a $25 million player option for 2019-20, which the Mavericks could have been okay with eating and moving into contention after his deal expires.
