We got our first look at traded players on new teams, remaining players on zombie teams, and even a Kevin Love sighting (like, real for ... just seen, and then gone). Dan Besbris breaks down…

Harrison Barnes scored 19 points on 7-of-19 shooting (including three treys) with 11 rebounds, four assists and two steals over 41 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets.
This isn't what you wanted to see if you're a Kings fan, popcorn numbers aside. He probably has a late-round floor but will be inconsistent from night to night as the Kings don't really have a game plan offensively, but rather they just go with the flow and whatever happens happens.

Harrison Barnes got a starter's load of minutes (37) on Friday but did not wow us with just 12 points on 3-of-9 shooting, seven rebounds, two assists and two threes.
Barnes' first game as a King left a lot to be desired by owners. He deferred to Buddy Hield as the go-to scorer in this game with Hield leading the Kings with 23 points (8-of-16 shooting), four treys, seven rebounds and two blocks. Barnes owners should not expect the same production he put up in Dallas and he may just fall out of 12-team relevance if he doesn't find a way to fit in.

Harrison Barnes, Alec Burks and Corey Brewer are all available to play on Friday vs. the Heat.
With a load of new players in town, it’ll be very interesting how Barnes fits, and whether he will play more small forward in Iman Shumpert’s former spot or if he’ll steal some minutes from Neminja Bjelica and Marvin Bagley at the 4. It’ll also be worth watch how Alec Burks impacts Bogdan Bogdanovic.

The new Kings, Harrison Barnes and Alec Burks, are expected to be available for Friday's game against the Heat.
Both are expected to arrive in Sacramento today. Barnes might need to settle in as more of a complementary player for the Kings but will move right into the starting lineup, so he should still be able to hold late-middle round value. Burks' value is more up for debate, though we're only looking at him in 16-team formats going forward. He won't have the same opportunity to fire up shots as he did with the Cavs.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Harrison Barnes is headed to the Kings in exchange Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph.
This is a move for cap relief and it was something that was expected. Expect Tim Hardaway Jr. to slide into that starting five and pick up where Barnes left off. Barnes will be crowding the Kings' wing spot, even more, this season, hurting both him and their established young core.

February 2, 2019, 11:18 pmHarrison Barnes - F - Dallas Mavericks
Harrison Barnes logged a team-high 36 minutes for the Mavs in their win over the Cavs on Saturday and delivered 17 points (7-of-18 shooting), five boards, two dimes, three treys and a block.
Barnes is someone the Mavs have as an option to trade away in order to free up cap space ($25 million player option for 2019-20) for next season, so he's someone to watch. He likely won't be as valuable on a more stacked team, so a sell-high move would be in order if you want to exit his stock.

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Mavs may consider moving Harrison Barnes and/or Dwight Powell on or before the trade deadline.
This makes sense as Dallas will need to free up cap space to rebuild around what they hope will be their European core duo of Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. Both Barnes and Powell have player options in their contracts for 2019-20. Barnes' production can be replaced by recently acquired Tim Hardaway Jr. while Maxi Kleber will benefit greatly as their last standing big man post-Powell trade. Barnes has the bigger option at $25 million, making his contract the higher priority to shed.

Harrison Barnes was the only Mavs player to score in double figures on Thursday with 27 points on 10-of-24 shooting to go with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds and four assists.
Someone had to score for Dallas and the obvious choice was Barnes. He was efficient tonight and the Mavs were actually competitive in this game, but he's still just a points specialist at best and there's a place for that in standard leagues.

Harrison Barnes was atrocious in Monday's road loss, going 4-of-15 from the field, 0-of-8 from three and 0-of-2 at the free throw line to finish with eight points, three rebounds and one assist in 31 minutes.
Just awful. Barnes' stat set is pretty weak but usually he'll at least boost your free throws — today he couldn't even do that. He's a top-100 guy on the back of points, rebounds, threes and decent percentages but today was Barnes at his very worst.
January 19, 2019, 10:33 pmHarrison Barnes - F - Dallas Mavericks
Harrison Barnes posted 20 points with three rebounds and two assists on 6-of-15 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Pacers.
Barnes added three 3-pointers and was perfect from the line (5-of-5 FTs) but didn't have any defensive stats throughout the game. Even with that, the Black Falcon still gives owners a top-100 value production in points, rebounds, 3-pointers and a respectable free throw rate.

Harrison Barnes put up 11 points with eight rebounds on 4-of-18 shooting in a loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.
Although he is putting up solid middle-round value on the season, he has clearly taken a backseat to Luka Doncic. A performance this bad from Barnes is a fluke so do not look too much into it and he should bounce back next game.
