For Derrick Williams, the trade rumors started almost as soon as he arrived in Minnesota. Even when the team picked up his option, it didn't end speculation that we would one day be dealt.
Now, it appears there is a fire where there has been smoke. Two national outlets reported a trade with the Sacremento Kings, pending a physical.

The physical for Mbah A Moute would be important, given his checkered injury history.
Kings forward Luc Mbah a Moute has had knee concerns since preseason, but source tells Yahoo it was to be real bad for Wolves not to do it.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) November 26, 2013
No picks, cash or other players expected to be involved in Williams-Luc deal, sources say. Wolves have been very eager to move Williams.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) November 26, 2013
That is in keeping with an earlier tweet, from ESPN.com's Marc Stein.
As Stein notes, Mbah A Moute was once Kevin Love's teammate in UCLA.
