Milwaukee Bucks Trade Luc Richard Mbah a Moute to Sacramento Kings


This is a smaller news piece destined to get lost in bigger news like Monta Ellis choosing a new home soon, but the Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings have struck a deal for  Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.

The Kings were desperately in the market for a small forward and said market was starting to get picked dry. Sacramento apparently gave up a second-round pick to obtain Mbah a Moute.

Ken Berger of CBSSports.com had the news first on Twitter:

 

 

Sam Amick of USA Today later confirmed the report with more details:

 

 

Smart move for the Kings here. Mbah a Moute has a chance to land a starting role with the team after averaging almost seven points per game to go with four rebounds.

Again, this is a move that will get lost in the shuffle, but Mbah a Moute is a quality pickup that can make the team better right away.
