It took about four days until the draft was over but Louis King and Kenny Wooten finally found out what team they will be playing for in Las Vegas starting July 5th. Louis King signed a two-way contract with the Detroit Pistons while Wooten will be signing on with the New York Knicks’ summer league roster.

The Pistons got a steal with King. The Detroit front office was very interested in him due to his length and ability to stretch the floor with his shooting skills. With regards to the two-way contract, King can spend up to 45 days with the Pistons. He will mostly be playing for the Pistons’ G-League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Drive.
Kenny Wooten’s path to an NBA roster is a bit tougher as he will have to prove his worth to the Knicks. According to the New York Post, Wooten will likely be given a chance to make the main roster in training camp. New York is in need of more defensive pressure down on the low block so Wooten may be the exact guy they are looking for.
