Timberwolves Swing Trade

Timberwolves Swing Trade

The Minnesota Timberwolves are trading former No. 2 overall draft pick Derrick Williams to the Sacramento Kings for Luc Mbah a Moute.

Two people with knowledge of the deal say the agreement was reached on Monday night. The people requested anonymity because neither team has officially announced the deal.

Williams with the No. 2 overall draft choice in 2011. But he never was able to carve a niche in Rick Adelman’s rotation and it became increasingly clear early this season that he had no role on the Timberwolves. Williams is averaging 4.9 points in under 15 minutes per game this season.

Mbah a Moute is averaging 4.4 points and 3.0 rebounds in nine games for the Kings this season.
