Kenny Wooten getting another big Knicks chance

Center Mitchell Robinson may have someone to compete with for most blocks in training camp.

Oregon power forward Kenneth Wooten, the 6-foot-9 leaper who impressed during the Las Vegas Summer League, has agreed to terms on an Exhibit 10 contract to attend Knicks training camp and fight for a roster spot, The Post has learned.

The Exhibit 10 deal guarantees Wooten $50,000 as long as he plays 45 days with the Westchester Knicks, should he be cut from the Knicks’ 15-man roster. The high flyer went undrafted and committed to the Knicks’ summer league team in Las Vegas, where he posted 10 blocks in four outings, playing 52 minutes.

His agent, Mitchell Butler, who played at UCLA and with three NBA teams, told The Post he considers Wooten “a top 5 athlete coming in with running, jumping and how quick his feet move.”
