He's an example for what you want your kids to be. "He will do great in his next destination and I am proud of all of the growth he experienced here".
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.
The Lakers have reportedly been trying to acquire him before Thursday's deadline, while the Boston Celtics are also believed to be interested. Barnes had a $25 million player option for next season.
The 23-year-old Jackson has played in 52 games with three starts for the Mavericks this season, averaging 6.7 points per game.
But Dallas found a taker for Barnes in the Sacramento Kings.
"Obviously disappointed for my guy". "He's been a great influence on the team and the community".
"By the time we said our goodbyes, he was fine, poised".
Barnes left the arena without speaking to reporters.
Barnes was shown live on television in America as news of the trade broke.
Randolph, a 37-year-old veteran center/forward, is in his 17th National Basketball Association season.
Jackson was drafted by Sacramento with the 15th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft out of North Carolina, where he helped guide the Tar Heels to a National Championship as a junior after earning ACC Player of the Year, Consensus First Team All American and First Team All-ACC honors.
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.
As for the rest of this season? But, what made things awkward here is the team traded the man while he was still on the freaking hardwood for them. "I'm going to miss him an bad lot".
