Bobby Marks: There is familiarity in Detroit with Johnson once represented by Arn Tellem, Vice Chairman of the Pistons. Detroit currently has an open roster spot. Michael Beasley and Christian Wood are both on a non-guaranteed contract.
Rod Beard: #Pistons officially announce adding Christian Wood off waivers. He slides nicely into a role of backup center, adding variety to the group of Blake Griffin, Markieff Morris and Thon Maker as options behind Andre Drummond.
Shams Charania: The Detroit Pistons have claimed forward Christian Wood off free agency waivers, league sources tell @The Athletic @Stadium.
New Orleans also is, for now, without UNLV product Christian Wood as well. Vinson said management and Wood’s agent had something to work out, but wouldn’t elaborate. No Williamson and no Wood means more opportunities for other players. “They’re not just playing for the New Orleans Pelicans,” Vinson said. “There are 29 other teams here, so they’re being watched by all.”
Scott Kushner: Source confirms Christian Wood signed for remainder of the season. He has no guaranteed money for next season. The Pelicans waived Jason Smith in corresponding roster move.
Bobby Marks: Would expect teams to take a hard look at claiming Christian Wood. The center has a $1.6M non-guaranteed contract for 19-20 with protection increased to 50% if not waived by the reg. season. Available to be claimed by all 29 teams at good value.
Marc J. Spears: Wouldn’t be surprised if free agent to be forward Christian Wood is claimed after being waived by the Bucks. Wood averaged 29.3 points, 14.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.1 blocks for G-League Wisconsin. He would not be playoff eligible, but could be a solid pickup for the future.
The Milwaukee Bucks need help at the guard position. Malcolm Brogdon, Donte DiVincenzo and Sterling Brown are all out with injuries and George Hill is still only playing limited minutes as he works back from a strained left adductor muscle. With that in mind, the Bucks made a difficult decision Monday, opting to waive forward Christian Wood to clear a roster spot to sign point guard Tim Frazier. Wood initially beat out Frazier for a spot in training camp, but with multiple forwards ahead of Wood in the lineup and a depleted corps of guards, the team had to make a move to balance its roster ahead of the playoffs.
Matt Velazquez: George Hill (left groin strain), Sterling Brown (right wrist soreness) and Christian Wood (G League assignment) are OUT for the Bucks. Everyone else is available with no limitations, Bud says.
The Milwaukee Bucks have recalled Christian Wood from the Wisconsin Herd of the NBA G League. In his ninth assignment of the season with the Herd, Wood averaged 33.7 points, 15.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.3 blocks per game, leading the Herd to a 3-0 record. In Sunday’s 119-115 win over the Erie BayHawks, Wood scored 40 points on 14-of-24 shooting (.583) and hauled in 20 rebounds, marking the first 40-point/20-rebound game in franchise history.
The drive along Interstate 41 from Milwaukee to Oshkosh has become familiar for Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach Vin Baker. The four-time NBA All-Star and former Olympian makes the 90-minute journey north frequently — traveling with young players to their assignments with the Wisconsin Herd and back to the Milwaukee Bucks. “He’s kind of like my right-hand guy,” Milwaukee Bucks power forward Christian Wood said. “He’s been great for me. He helps me out when I mess up certain times in the games. He tells me what’s wrong and right. He’s a good guy to have on my side.”
The Milwaukee Bucks have assigned guard Donte DiVincenzo and forward Christian Wood to the Wisconsin Herd of the NBA G League. DiVincenzo has played in 23 games with the Bucks this season and is averaging 4.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game, while Wood has appeared in six games with Milwaukee and is averaging 4.2 points and 2.7 rebounds a contest.
The Milwaukee Bucks have recalled forward Christian Wood from the Wisconsin Herd of the NBA G League. Wood recorded game-highs in both points (30) and rebounds (14) in Saturday’s matchup against the Grand Rapids Drive at Menominee Nation Arena in Oshkosh, Wis. He also shot 10-for-17 (.588) from the field, 3-of-6 from three and a perfect 7-for-7 from the free-throw line. In 11 games (all starts) with the Herd this season, Wood is averaging 28.6 points, 12.5 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.3 assists per game while shooting 53.3 percent from the field.
Marc J. Spears: Not earth shattering news that Bucks has assigned forward Christian Wood to NBA G-League Wisconsin. But in 11 games with the Herd this season Wood is averaging 28.5 points, 12.4 rebounds, 2.6 blocks, 2.4 assists and 1.1 steals per game. Sounds like he needs more NBA time.
Matt Velazquez: Ersan Ilyasova took a shot to the head in Wednesday’s game and is out tonight with a mild concussion. Bud says part of the reason the Bucks recalled Christian Wood from the G League was to have 13 active players for today’s game.
The Milwaukee Bucks have recalled Christian Wood from the Wisconsin Herd of the NBA G League. Wood has appeared in three games for the Herd this season and is averaging 23.0 points, 10.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.7 blocks in 33.4 minutes per game while shooting 52.8 percent from the field.
The Milwaukee Bucks have assigned Christian Wood to the Wisconsin Herd of the NBA G League. Wood has appeared in five games for the Bucks this season and averaged 3.8 points and 2.4 rebounds in 5.8 minutes per game. He has also played in two games for the Herd this season and averaged 18.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 steals in 31.7 minutes per game.
Milwaukee Bucks: The Bucks have recalled Sterling Brown and Christian Wood from the @WisconsinHerd. Last night, Brown had 12 points, 14 rebounds and 8 assists in 37 minutes, while Wood played 32 minutes and tallied 23 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 blocked shots.
League sources said Thon Maker, who makes $2.8 million this season, D.J. Wilson, who makes $2.5 million, or Christian Wood, who makes $1.5 million. would be potential candidates in a Korver-Dellavedova deal. Like Dellavedova, Maker, Wilson and Wood are buried on the Bucks’ depth chart. The Bucks aren’t the only team interested in Korver’s services. Sources said Philadelphia, Oklahoma City and Los Angeles Lakers are also among the Korver suitors.
The Legends have acquired the returning player rights to Dionte Christmas, LaDontae Henton, and Christian Wood in a three-team trade with Agua Caliente and Delaware. In return, Texas sends returning player rights to Cory Jefferson to the Blue Coats, and Agua Caliente receives the returning player rights to Marc Loving.
Matt Velazquez: Per source, the Bucks waived Tyler Zeller today. I didn’t see him at practice today, but wasn’t sure if that was just because he was somewhere behind the scenes. This answers that question. Last men standing for the Bucks’ final roster spot are Tim Frazier & Christian Wood.
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed free agents Tim Frazier, Shabazz Muhammad and Christian Wood to complete their 20-man roster for training camp, which tips-off on Tuesday, Sept. 25 from the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Sports Science Center.
Bobby Marks: $100K in guaranteed money on the Christian Wood contract in Milwaukee. Wood will compete for the final roster spot with Tyler Zeller, Shabazz Muhammad and Tim Frazier. Milwaukee has 14 guaranteed contracts.

Shams Charania: Sources: Forward Christian Wood has agreed to a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks. Wood played for Bucks in Las Vegas summer league, where he was part of all-first team.
Alex Kennedy: The Toronto Raptors are working out free agent big men, including Thomas Robinson and Christian Wood, according to league sources.
Matt Velazquez: I hear there are multiple teams interested in Christian Wood & a deal may not be far off. However, Milwaukee is not one of those teams. Will be interesting to see who signs him/what he gets. Note: Since they’re over the cap, Bucks can only offer minimum deal or portion of MLE.
Ian Begley: Top G League prospect Christian Wood looked good against Westchester on Thursday. He had 15 pts, 7 reb & hit two game-winning free-throws. Wood, 22, is averaging 22 and 10 for Delaware. The Knicks have an open roster spot and are keeping an eye on many top G League players.
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.
David ‘Dubi’ Pick: Source: Charlotte free-agent forward Christian Wood has signed with Fujian in China.
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.

As the Sixers look to add some undrafted free agents to their summer league roster, they’ll be joined by at least one familiar face. According to a league source, power forward Christian Wood will join Philadelphia for both Utah Summer League and Las Vegas Summer League.
In the moment that he considers one of the worst in his life, Christian Wood folded his 6-foot-10 frame in half and put his head in his hands as he realized he was not going to be selected in the NBA draft. His manager stood to one side. His nephew stood about a foot away from his polished black shoes that stuck far out from his suit pants. His mother, Jeanette Stewart, was behind him, along with his college coach, Dave Rice. “As soon as the first round was over on draft night, I was like, ‘I don’t know what’s going on,’ ” he recalled nearly 11 months after that day. “After the 39th pick of the NBA draft, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m still not picked.’ ”
As Wood’s head rested on his hands, a photographer from the Las Vegas Review Journal, captured the heartbreaking moment. Gary Parrish, a CBS columnist, tweeted out the photo the next morning. It went viral, appearing on websites — including this one — as one of the worst moments of the draft. Some mean-spirited people tweeted that Wood deserved his fate for shooting above his weight and coming out too soon and chasing the money. Parrish defended him, writing on Twitter that he would be paid to play basketball somewhere.
Wood left the party to go to a nearby casino with his sister. Stewart met them there and he told her he was sorry. “He said, ‘Mom, I’m sorry, I’m a failure.’ I said, ‘You’re not a failure. That doesn’t make you a failure because you went on undrafted,’” she said. “‘Let me tell you, God works in mysterious ways and has a plan for you. I said what you’re going to do is put your head up high. Put your head up high and wipe away those tears, because from this point you’re going to go forth in your career and you’re going to be OK.’”
His mom had wanted him to stay at UNLV for another year, at least — after that he could finish his degree or get close enough to finish online. When he told her the news, Stewart said she was “hurt” but promised to support him. “I think that it was a situation where he relied on all the information that we were able to gather,” Rice, his college coach, said. “And I think he made the best decision for him because that’s the one that he made.”

The Philadelphia 76ers announced today that they have assigned forwards Carl Landry and Christian Wood to the Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League.
Okafor, who was with teammate Christian Wood at the time, said he spoke to Sixers coach Brett Brown about the incident Thursday. The 76ers released a statement Thursday evening saying they were aware of the report and working to gather additional information. An NBA spokesman also said Friday that the league was aware of and looking into the matter.
The 76ers keeping Wood is a testament to his rehabilitated work ethic. “He’s a really great person. He’s got a great heart,” Rice said. “He’s got a world of upside and he’s just starting to realize that.” Wood’s upside was evident when he pump-faked, sprinted past Kyle O’Quinn and posterized Derrick Williams back on Oct. 12. He showed more flashes on Monday, logging nine points and eight rebounds in 22 minutes in a loss to Chicago. “I have a bigger chip on my shoulder. I know what’s at stake,” Wood said.
Wood and his primary agent, Matt Ramker, agreed they weren’t open to any draft-and-stash scenario. His dream of hearing his name called live from the Barclays Center was dead. Wood drove home in solitude, the 10-minute trip feeling more like an hour. “It definitely hurt,” Wood said. He believed he could have been selected as high as No. 13 by the Suns. He didn’t expect to fall past the Grizzlies at No. 25. “Memphis told me how much they liked me,” Wood said. The drive provided an opportunity to reflect. What could have possibly gone wrong? “There was a lot of talk going around about my energy and my effort and I was a risk/reward type player,” Wood said. “A lot of NBA teams didn’t want to take the risk. Some teams thought I was lazy, some teams thought I didn’t give effort 100 percent all of the time. I think that played a big part into it. I wouldn’t say I took it for granted, but I definitely thought I could be doing the stuff I did in college in a conference with a bunch of smaller guys in the NBA, which is pretty much a whole different animal.”
