A person with knowledge of the deal says the Milwaukee Bucks have traded forward Luc Mbah a Moute to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for a 2016 second-round draft pick.
The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because teams can't confirm moves until the new league year begins Wednesday, says Milwaukee retains the right to swap the pick for a 2018 selection.
The 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward has emerged as a standout defender since he was drafted 37th overall out of UCLA by the Bucks in 2008. He has averaged 6.9 points and 5.3 rebounds in 25.1 minutes per game in his career.
CBS Sports first reported the trade.
