SACRAMENTO, Calif — Update: 9:15 p.m.
Two people familiar with the negotiations say the remodeling of the Dallas Mavericks is continuing, with the team agreeing in principle Wednesday night to send Harrison Barnes to the Sacramento Kings for Zach Randolph and Justin Jackson.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the trade still needs NBA approval.
Barnes was taken out of the Dallas-Charlotte game late in the third quarter and remained on the Mavs' bench for the remainder of the contest, even as reports swirled of his pending move to the Kings. The deal comes just days after Dallas landed Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. from the New York Knicks.
The Kings are hoping to keep Barnes next season, adding him to a young and promising core. Barnes has a player option for $25.1 million.
