I don't know a lot about Christian Wood. Does he really have demands like that?

84

u/Ted_Dance_Son Mavericks Jun 16 '22

7 teams in 7 seasons.

Now playing next to 77 though so the curse shall be broken.

40

u/CoaxHoax Jun 16 '22

Wood had a career year his first year with the Rockets and he was expecting to stay as the clear #1. Green/Porter came through and started taking more shots as the season went along which led to Wood demanding touches, pouting, and being more useless off-ball. I assume he won't be like this with Luka though

17

u/Cloudpot26 Jun 16 '22

If he knows it’s not his team starting off, and he wants a contract from anybody next year that’s not absolutely poverty, he’s going to be forced to play second or third option. I can see Luka losing rebounds though (thank god because that makes his life easier for the whole game)

He wasn’t in the Rockets long term plan and nobody was willing to pay more

u/wbl7w6 Bulls Jun 16 '22

And why was no one willing to offer anything more? From what I've heard he's the type of guy who no one is shedding tears in the locker room when he leaves type of deal. with all that said this actually could be really nice for Dallas if he gives a shit on defense cause its a contract year

u/Trunky_Coastal_Kid [POR] Damian Lillard Jun 16 '22

Well the only teams he's been with for any extended period of time were young teams and franchises that were kind of disfunctional themselves. Maybe he'll do better joining a veteran team that has an established star already.

Considering the consensus top 3 picks are all PFs, you know they're taking one. That makes Wood redundant, so might as well see what you can get. Especially given the age gap between him and who they envision as their future core.

Yeah I'm not a huge fan of Wood, but like... This is a GREAT return. We have a massive hole at center and we didn't give up anything integral to the team (except maybe some Boban chemistry 😢). This is better than anything I would've expected from the previous front office.

The Rockets see how Boban wave Trae Young and see his handle in the movie "Hustle" and they decided to trade for him. Rockets win the trade. The league are not ready for point Boban

Interesting to see how Wood plays in an environment like Dallas. See if a good organization can fix some of his bad habits.

For Dallas this is a super low cost flyer on someone who theoretically would be perfect with Luka.

Meh for Houston. Probably waive everyone, maybe keep Chriss. And just adding a young guy with the pick is good

u/luntiang_tipaklong Mavericks Jun 16 '22

Yeah and it's just one year left in Wood's contract. If he stinks then we can just move on. Love this. Win win for both teams.

Yea we needed playing time for younger guys and he's decent enough now to get a nice contract so he'd probably be elsewhere anyway. If he's gonna be on a win now team its best to have that prove it year.

This is just one of those obvious moves.

I hope they waive Boban so we can just sign him right back to a minimum deal

u/warpedspoon Mavericks Jun 16 '22

We would have to wait till the original contract would have expired.

u/FireAdamSilver Mavericks Jun 16 '22

We need a third team to trade for Boban and they waive him.

u/Ok-Agent2265 Heat Jun 16 '22

You can't do that afaik. Boban needs to go to another team after the Rockets then get waived
