LeBron James vents on Instagram about Harrison Barnes trade | After the Buzzer

Anthony Davis New Orleans Pelicans

"Just call a ♠️ a ♠️!", wrote James on Instagram.

As of Wednesday night, four former UNC players have now been traded before the deadline including Wayne Ellington and Reggie Bullock. And so once everybody found out about the trade, they pulled him out.

James' post was pretty clearly about Anthony Davis' situation.

Part of the reason for James' frustration could be the backlash against Davis, after he requested a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans. League rules prevent a team from acquiring a second player playing on a designated rookie extension, the contract signed by both he and Kyrie Irving in the past several years. So it is easy to see the clear line of communication between the two parties.

As it happened, to accommodate Durant in 2016 the Warriors renounced the rights to Barnes, whom they had taken seventh overall in the 2012 draft.

Barnes started and had three points in 17 minutes in the first half.

The deal has significant financial ramifications for Dallas, as it positions the Mavs to be aggressive in free agency this summer, despite taking on the combined $31 million in salary owed next season to Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee in the Porzingis deal.

Dirk Nowitzki said following the 99-93 Dallas win that he only learned of the trade after looking toward the Mavericks' bench in the fourth quarter and wondering why Barnes wasn't substituting into the game for him. "I got word of it during the game and so that is why he didn't play down the stretch, obviously". Calling Barnes "a special guy", Carlisle said, "I'm proud of all the growth he experienced here".

The Barnes deal came on the eve of the National Basketball Association trade deadline and a week after Dallas' blockbuster with the New York Knicks to acquire Kristaps Porzingis. Barnes has a player-option on his $25 million deal for the 2019-2020 season.
