The Brooklyn Nets and Sacramento Kings completed a trade Tuesday that sends second-year forward Kessler Edwards to Sacramento.

The Nets also sent cash to the Kings while acquiring the draft rights to guard David Michineau, who currently plays for Napoli Basket in Italy. He also has played professionally in his native France.

Edwards, who has split time this season between the Nets and their G League affiliate Long Island, is averaging 1.1 points per game in 14 contests (one start) this season in Brooklyn.

He played in 48 games (23 starts) as a rookie last season and averaged 5.9 points per game.

The Nets will save a total of $8 million with the move, opening up a roster spot as well.

The Kings intend to send Edwards to their G League affiliate in Stockton, Calif.

Edwards was a second-round pick (44th overall) out of Pepperdine in 2021.

Michineau, 28, was initially drafted the New Orleans Pelicans in the second round (39th overall) of the 2016 NBA Draft. His draft rights were later held by the Los Angeles Clippers previously to being obtained by the Kings.
