Zach Randolph traded from Kings to Mavericks Wednesday

Barnes traded while on court for Mavericks

National Basketball Association veteran Harrison Barnes looked just as shocked as everyone else when he learned during the middle of the game against the Charlotte Hornets that he was being traded to the Sacramento Kings.

Kemba Walker had 30 points and 11 rebounds for the Hornets, who got swept by Dallas after losing to the Mavericks by 38 points at home about a month ago.

Harrison Barnes #40 of the Dallas Mavericks handles the ball against the Phoenix Suns on January 9, 2019 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 12 points in his first game since leaving the Knicks.

The Mavericks informed Barnes and his agent, Jeff Schwartz, that a trade might be in the works, but the forward made a decision to play against Charlotte anyway, according to former Boston Celtics great Paul Pierce and the New York Times' Marc Stein.

"He's a better man than me, for sure", Dallas veteran Dirk Nowitzki said of Barnes.

"Everybody else would have bounced".

Dallas, which swept the two-game season series from Charlotte, including a 38-point win at Charlotte on January 2, received balanced scoring with six players reaching double figures.

Batum, who finished with 14 points, got the Hornets within three with a 3-pointer before Finney-Smith answered from long range for a 97-91 lead in his second career double-double. He's just a generally good dude.

As the first half of the season came and went and the back end of the Dallas Mavericks 82-game sprint began, it was clear that the team needed to change something.
