The consensus seems to be that Williams, the former No. 2 overall pick, was sold for pennies on the dollar. But those sentiments are based on projectability more than production.
Wolves President of Basketball Operations Flip Saunders will speak to the media at 1 p.m., but he had a few remarks over Twitter on the deal.
More Flip: "Luc is known as one of the premier defensive players in the league with an ability to guard multiple positions." #Twolves— Timberwolves PR (@Twolves_PR) November 26, 2013
More Flip: "(Mbah a Moute) adds a lot of energy, grit and a high basketball IQ to our team" #Twolves— Timberwolves PR (@Twolves_PR) November 26, 2013
