Christian Wood

Christian Wood is a three-level scorer who could be an intriguing addition to the green team; that being a nine-year veteran big man who was one of the best sixth men in the league one year ago with the Dallas Mavericks. Wood averaged 16.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks on 52% shooting, 38% from three, and a career-best 77% from the line. His new role with the Lakers did not give him much opportunity to shine, just seeing 17 minutes of playing time a night and just half of the touches previously.

Christian Wood's major drawback has always been his defense, but on the Cs, he would be forced to adapt or not see the floor. Players can develop into good defenders given proper development and coaching. One interesting tidbit is he has never played in the playoffs in his nine-year career. Even though the Lakers made the playoffs, he missed games due to injury.
