In July of 2019, Wooten agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract with the New York Knicks. He was released just before the start of the 2019-20 season, cleared waivers, and played for the G League Westchester Knicks. The 6-foot-8 rookie played in 27 G League games and averaged 7.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and a whopping 3.6 blocks per contest. On Dec. 19 in a loss to Canton, Wooten blocked a season-high nine shots in just 20 minutes of play. He blocked five or more shots in 10 G League games. On Jan. 13, the Knicks signed Wooten to a two-way contract. Roughly a dozen days later, Wooten dislocated a finger. He returned to action for one G League game on Feb. 19, but suffered a thumb injury that required surgery to repair a torn ligament. The surgery required a six-week absence. Wooten did not appear in an NBA game during the shortened 2019-20 season.
