Yes, you can put two kings and a wild on the table, for a total of three cards. You can never have more wild cards than the card itself is the restriction. Though, a canasta book, dirty or straight, is seven cards, not six (4 kings and 2 wild cards), just a FYI.

Rules say, maximum of 2 wild cards per meld and only 1 canasta of a kind, in this case , kings.
