Berman reports, “The Knicks have paved the way for shot-blocking power forward Kenny Wooten to get some time in the NBA.
The Knicks are waiving Ivan Rabb, their two-way contract player, an NBA source confirmed.
That will allow the Knicks to now sign Wooten, already a member of the Westchester Knicks, to a two-way deal. Wooten starred at summer league after being undrafted out or Oregon and the Knicks were concerned he was going to sign elsewhere.
Rabb was signed right before the season opener to a two-way deal when the Kris Wilkes’ agreement fell apart.
Rabb came on recommendation from since-fired coach David Fizdale and never saw action with the Knicks.
The Knicks have to rejigger their two-way contract guys by Jan. 15. After that deadline, no two-way player can be signed. Wooten is allowed 45 days with the big club.”
An obvious one, but still a good one!
