Derrick Williams for Luc Mbah a Moute trade officially completed

New, comments

Welcome to Sacramento, Derrick.

USA TODAY Sports

It looks like Luc Mbah a Moute passed his physical because the Kings have sent a press release declaring the trade officially done.  Luc will head over to Minnesota while Derrick Williams joins the Sacramento Kings.

From the Kings press release:

"We're excited to acquire a player with Derrick's skillset," said D'Alessandro. "He will add size, length and serve as a scoring threat in our frontcourt. We also want to thank Luc for his contributions during the short time he was a King. We wish him the best."

We here at Sactown Royalty would like to thank Luc Mbah a Moute as well.  Even for just a little while, it was nice to have a real Small Forward again.  Best of luck to the Fresh Prince in Minnesota, where hopefully he can help that team end their playoff drought.

Williams will join the team tomorrow and likely practice with the team on Thursday, per Yahoo's Marc J. Spears.  It's unknown whether Williams will suit up for Friday's game against the Clippers, although if I had to guess, I'd say no.  Malone seems to like to get a feel for players in practice first.

UPDATE 10:41 A.M.:

Sam Amick has a good interview with Pete D'Alessandro regarding the trade.
