Trade: McCants to Kings

The Timberwolves have succeeded in trading Rashad McCants, sending him to Sacramento with Calvin Booth in exchange for Bobby Brown and Shelden Williams, CBSSports.com has learned.

It was the Kings' second trade in as many days, and again, cost-savings is the theme. Brown and Williams carry team options totaling about $5 million for 2009-10. McCants is due a qualifying offer of $3.6 million, and Sacramento figures to release Booth, who has a $1.1 million expiring contract. Booth could be a second or third option for Boston or perhaps Cleveland, depending on what happens with Joe Smith.
