The Bullets will be able to replace King on the roster with a player who may earn up to 50 percent of King's annual salary.General manager John Nash said he plans to offer a contract to No. 1 draft pick Tom Gugliotta, a forward from North Carolina State.

King will continue to be on the roster and will open the season on the injured list, team officials said.

King missed the entire 1991-92 season following arthroscopic surgery in September 1991.
