That's what happened to Barnes, who was traded to the Kings, in exchange for Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph. Michelle Beadle then reads LeBron James' Instagram post in which he rants about Barnes' mid-game trade.
"I'm ok with both honestly, truly am", James wrote in the post.
He joins the Kings after spending the last two-plus seasons in Dallas, where he was averaging 17.8 points (.406 FG%,.390 3pt%,.833 FT%), 4.3 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 49 contests this season, all starts.
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.
"I am going to miss him an very bad lot", Carlisle said.

Just recently , the social networking app was criticized for paying minors to access their phone data, the Deseret News reported . At that time, "multiple sources noted that messages they received from the CEO had mysteriously disappeared", The Verge reports .
After the game, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle thanked Barnes in front of the team for "being the model professional and a great example". "He had an imprint so we're going to miss him". Mark Cuban owes the man an apology. Barnes has a player-option on his $25 million deal for the 2019-2020 season.
Randolph can still contribute as a relentless rebounder and capable scorer from the forward position, as he put up 14.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per game in 2017-18, before sitting out this entire season. He will join a Sacramento team (28-26) on the cusp of a playoff spot in the Western Conference. "He's a professional, so I'm sure he's going to fit in ideal". The Lakers have reportedly been trying to acquire him before Thursday's deadline. Nemanja Bjelica is the oldest and doesn't turn 31 until May.
As of Wednesday night, four former UNC players have now been traded before the deadline including Wayne Ellington and Reggie Bullock.
