Lyou The Dallas Mavericks needed him, the Dallas Mavericks have him. Christian Wood is one of the new pieces of the Texas team for its assault on the highest levels of the NBA. The interior with a spell at the Detroit Pistons and Houston Rockets arrives at the Mavs to fill a key position and that throughout the season has been a notable problem after the departure of Porzingis and the presence of Powell.

As announced by most of the ‘insiders’ of the NBA, Wood will arrive in exchange for four role players and a ‘pick’ from the Draft. Role-playing, because neither Trey Burke, nor Boban Marjanovic, nor Sterling Brown nor Marquese Chriss are first-rate players for the franchise led by Mark Cuban.. They will go to Houston together with the 26th pick of the next Draft. A candidate for ‘bargain’ within the market period. Not be official until Draft night.

Wood serves as a reference from the inside. In a team where Doncic directs all the attacks and determines each play, he will have more support.. Wood comes from averaging a double-double per game (17’9 + 10.2) and is even around a decent 40% from the triple. That is to say, he can be a reference both inside and add to the threat from outside. All this added to a tremendous physical display.

His big ‘but’ is his character. Without going any further, he was suspended in January 2022 for misbehavior with his Rockets partner Kevin Porter Jr. In his case, he refused to enter the field when asked by Stephen Silas. That strange behavior also cost him in the past, as he was drafted in 2015 and he was in several teams, such as the Sixers, Hornets or Bucks, who decided to do without his services until the Pistons gave him an opportunity.

That is precisely the fear for the new Mavs. They give up one of their emblems off the field, like Boban Marjanovic, and add a player with the ability to help but who has not stood out for his great attitudes in favor of the teams. Doncic will have a wayward partner, with whom storming the skies is more possible.
