The Kings will hope to keep Barnes for the foreseeable future, as he has a player option for next season.
Jackson gives the Mavericks a young, developmental wing. The second-year pro out of North Carolina is averaging 6.7 points in 20.8 minutes per game.
Randolph, 37, has not played a minute for the Kings this season. The Mavericks will reportedly discuss his future with the team, which could make him a free agent to sign with any team in the coming days. He has averaged 16.1 points and 9.1 rebounds per game throughout his career.
