Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have finalized a trade on Tuesday, swapping forward Derrick Williams for the Sacramento Kings' Luc Mbah a Moute.

Mbah a Moute, a teammate of Kevin Love's at UCLA, has averaged 6.8 points and 5.3 rebounds in 344 career games with the Milwaukee Bucks and Kings. Sacramento had acquired the 6-foot-8 forward in a deal with the Bucks this past summer.

"We are excited to acquire a solid veteran player in Luc Mbah a Moute," Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders said in a statement. "Luc is known as one of the premier defensive players in the league with an ability to guard multiple positions. He adds a lot of energy, grit and a high basketball IQ to our team. We thank Derrick for his contributions to our organization and wish him well in Sacramento."

Williams was selected by the Timberwolves with the second overall pick in the 2011 draft. He averaged 10.1 points and 4.9 rebounds over his two-plus seasons with the club.

"We're excited to acquire a player with Derrick's skillset," said Kings general manager Pete 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."
