The Knicks have officially signed Kenny Wooten to a two-way contract, the team announced.
SNY's Ian Begley confirmed Monday that Wooten would be brought up from the Westchester Knicks and Ivan Rabb would be waived to make room for him. Details of the contract have yet to be released.
Wooten has played 24 games for Westchester this season, averaging 7.7 points per game on 66 percent shooting, 5.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24 minutes a game.
His main draw comes on defense, where aside for the nearly six boards a game, the forward is averaging a staggering 3.43 blocks per game, which ranks second-highest in the G League.
Wooten has eight games this season with five or more blocks -- a franchise-record -- and had a franchise-tying eight blocks in a game back on Nov. 20.
Adding Wooten to a front court that includes Mitchell Robinson could make the Knicks' defense -- specifically in the paint -- much harder to deal with as the season moves on.
