Christian Wood has NBA talent and ability without question. The question marks surrounding his game are whether or not he’s going to be as engaged as he should be. I recently spoke to one league executive who said, “He could have a long NBA career, or he could bounce around the world playing in a different country every year, it’s really up to him. Because when he’s engaged he’s one of the elite players in this league, no question.”
Christian Wood just turned 22-years-old less than two months ago. After two seasons in the NBA — rookie year with the Philadelphia 76ers and last season with the Charlotte Hornets — he finds himself on the outside looking in. He’s back in the NBA G League with the Delaware 87ers trying to prove he’s worth taking a chance on. Seven games into the season he’s averaging 22.9 points, 9.9 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 2.1 steals and 2.3 blocks in 32.0 minutes a night. Wood is 6-foot-10 and weights approximately 220 pounds. He’s got a massive 7-foot-3 wingspan as well.
Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has recalled forward Christian Wood from the Greensboro Swarm, the team’s NBA Development League affiliate. Wood (6-11, 220, University of Nevada-Las Vegas), is in his first year with the Hornets after signing as a free agent on July 14, 2016 after spending his rookie year with the Philadelphia 76ers.This marks Wood’s third D-League stint of the year, appearing in 18 games (16 starts) during his time with Greensboro, averaging 19.6 points, 10.1 boards and 2.6 blocks in 30.0 minutes per contest. His mark of 2.6 blocks per game (47 total) ranks second in the D-League. The 21-year-old tallied 45 points, 15 rebounds and eight blocks (all career-highs) vs. the Long Island Nets on Jan. 12.
