The Washington Wizards on Thursday traded a problem child for two veteran gentlemen, sending Chris Webber to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Mitch Richmond and Otis Thorpe.

The trade breaks up the former "Fab Five" duo of Webber and Juwan Howard, who brought more disgrace than success in four troubled seasons in Washington.

"We gave up a tremendous young talent in Chris Webber," said Washington GM Wes Unseld. "We got a tremendous, mature leadership-type individual in Mitch Richmond."
