Report: Timberwolves' Derrick Williams Traded to Kings
As we told you on 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS at 6 p.m., the Wolves are close to a trade involving forward Derrick Williams.
ESPN.com takes it a step further saying Williams is going to Sacramento for forward Luc Richard Mbah A Moute. He's known as a great one-on-one defensive player.
For Williams, it's a fresh start and a place where he can play his more natural power forward position. For the Wolves, it's another top-6 pick -- think Wes Johnson and Jonny Flynn -- that didn't work out. Williams was the second overall pick in the 2011 Draft.
Both players are signed through next season.
The trade is expected to be made official Tuesday.
