Bacon will rejoin the Hornets in Dallas prior to the team's game against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019 at 8:30pm ET.

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, a major star and major voice for the NBA players' association, didn't like what he say and expressed as much on social media.

The NBA's trade deadline is set for Thursday at 3 p.m. E.T.

Interestingly, his post was liked by Anthony Davis, who shares an agent with LeBron and who last week asked the New Orleans Pelicans to trade him. I'm ok with both honestly, truly am. It was a weird scene though seeing a player get traded in the middle of the game, watching his former teammates on the Mavs sideline minutes after finding out he was now a member of a different franchise. But the fact the Mavericks were playing a game against the Charlotte Hornets when Barnes found out made it a bit. well, awkward.

Barnes released a statement Wednesday night thanking the Mavericks organization.

"He's a better man than me, for sure", Dallas veteran Dirk Nowitzki said of Barnes. "Everybody else would have bounced out".

"The Kings are trading Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph to the Mavericks for Harrison Barnes, league sources tell ESPN", he reported. The first teenager with multiple triple-doubles, Doncic had 11 assists and 10 rebounds on a rough shooting night (5 of 20, including 2 of 10 from 3-point range). He's just a genuinely good dude and he's obviously got bonds with some of these players here for life. The figure could rise up to $40 million if Dwight Powell opts out of his deal.
