Trento signs small forward King

Dolomiti Energia Trento announced the signing of small forward George King to a one-year contract. King (1.98 meters, 25 years old) arrives from Phoenix of the NBA, though the spent the majority of what was his maiden professional season with the club’s G-League affiliate, Northern Arizona. He averaged 15.5 points on 42.9% three-point shooting, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 41 G-League games last season. King played four seasons of college basketball at the University of Colorado. Trento will be King’s first team outside his native United States.

"We welcome a player about whom we did not hesitate for a moment," Coach Nicola Brienza said. "King is a high-quality young player on both ends of the court. On offense, he can open the floor with his excellent outside shot, but he also knows how to attack the basket. On defense, he uses his physicality to protect the rim."
