Former Oregon, Hudson Catholic forward Lou King signs Two-Way with Sacramento Kings
Former Oregon and Hudson Catholic forward Louis King signed a Two-Way contract with the Sacramento Kings as announced by the team Sunday.
The 6-foot-7 King joined the Westchester Knicks prior to the start of the 2021 NBA G League single site season as an affiliate. The Secaucus, N.J. native averaged 13.7 points on 52.1-percent shooting, 4.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.5 steals in 15 games. King’s 45.6-percent clip from deep ranked first in the G League. The forward went for season-highs of 22 points against Long Island (2/17), 13 rebounds versus Erie (3/5) and four three-pointers made on three consecutive occasions.
King spent one season at Oregon before going undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft. He signed a two-way contract with the Detroit Pistons in July of 2019, but appeared in just 10 games for Detroit and hasn’t seen NBA action since.
He averaged 15.0 points on 42.0-percent, 5.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 31 contests with the Grand Rapids Drive in 2019-20.
King becomes the 14th player to receive a call-up in Westchester Knicks’ history and the fourth under head coach, Derrick Alston.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news April 30.
