He appeared in four games for the Dallas Mavericks this season, and spent most of the year with the Agua Caliente Clippers of the G League.
King had a stellar collegiate career at Colorado, where he established himself as a consistent 3-and-D threat over his four-year tenure. He was a career 40% three-point shooter, averaging over ten points and five rebounds as a three-year starter in the Pac-12. He was a second-round pick of the Phoenix Suns in the 2018 NBA Draft.
