MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A month and a half after he was traded from Minnesota to Sacramento, Derrick Williams says he already can tell that the Kings are a much better fit for him.

Williams made his return to Minnesota on Wednesday night for the first time since the Timberwolves traded him for Luc Mbah a Moute on Nov. 25. Williams was the No. 2 overall pick in 2011 and the highest draft choice in franchise history. But he was never able to get consistent minutes under coach Rick Adelman.

Williams says playing for the rebuilding Kings is a better situation for him than playing behind Kevin Love and a Timberwolves team pushing for the playoffs.

Williams is playing nearly 25 minutes a game for Sacramento and averaging 9.5 points and shooting 49 percent.
