Detroit Pistons PF Christian Wood included on top 25 free agents list

He trails only Anthony Davis and Fred VanVleet.

When the Pistons opted to waive Joe Johnson in favor of Christian Wood before the 2019-2020 NBA season, surely we all expected for Wood to become one of the hottest commodities in free agency the following year. Right?

According to Pelton, Christian Wood ranks No. 3 out of all impending free agents in the NBA, trailing only Anthony Davis and Fred VanVleet.

Here is what Pelton has to say about Wood:

During 2019-20, Wood mimicked VanVleet’s career trajectory, starting out as a hyperproductive backup to Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond and becoming a starter after Drummond was traded at the deadline.

From Feb. 3 onward, Wood averaged 22.3 points and 9.5 rebounds in 34.1 minutes per game, shooting 56% from the field and 41% from 3-point range. He finished 16th in the league in RPM, and he is just entering his prime, having turned 25 last month. All of that makes Wood a fascinating target.

Re-signing Wood is expected to be a top priority for the Pistons and their new general manager, Troy Weaver.
