We present here a mapping of a molecular dynamics simulation onto density transfers between cells, reminiscent of lattice gas and lattice Boltzmann methods. We show that while it is impossible for fundamental reasons to map this method on a standard lattice gas method, it may be possible to map an ensemble average of this method onto a lattice Boltzmann method.  We performed a sample Molecular Dynamics simulation for the underlying physical dynamics. The migration of particles was observed at each time-step and lattice cell with associate a lattice velocity vector. After another time-step particles were redistributed to new lattice sites and lattice velocities which can be understood as an effective Molecular Dynamics derived Lattice Boltzmann (MDLB) collision operator.  We show that the new MDLB collision operator shows promise for mapping it onto a standard collision operator of lattice Boltzmann.
