The Minnesota Timberwolves and Sacramento Kings have exchanged Derrick Williams for Luc Mbah a Moute.

Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports first reported the deal on Monday.

Williams was the second overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft behind Kyrie Irving.

"We see this as an opportunity for (Williams) to have a fresh start," said Pete D'Alessandro to Sam Amick of USA Today.

Flip Saunders and Rick Adelman concluded that Williams was unable to play small forward in their system.
