Sacramento Kings acquire Derrick Williams in trade with Timberwolves

The Sacramento Kings will be welcoming a new player this week – assuming everything goes well with a physical.

According to a handful of sources, the Kings will send forward Luc Mbah A Moute to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Derrick Williams, a deal which will be completed on Tuesday assuming Mbah A Moute passes his physical.

Mbah A Moute of course has had a somewhat lengthy problem with his knees, including tendinitis that flared up during training camp which forced the Kings small forward to miss the first handful of games this season.

It’s expected that Mbah A Moute will complete his physical at some point on Tuesday, which is when the trade will become official – this again assuming he passes it.

Considering his lack of knee problems lately, it shouldn’t be an issue though with such questionable knees you can never been completely sure.

We will have reaction and breakdown to the trade later, so stay tuned.
