The Pistons have played 12 games since they traded away Andre Drummond.
During this month-long, 12-game sample-size, Christian Wood is averaging:
21.9 points (on 53.1% shooting), 10.2 rebounds, and 1.6 made 3-pointers.

Rod Beard of the Detroit News believes Wood should be in the running for most improved player:
#Pistons Christian Wood should be in the conversation for Most Improved Player. He may not win, but what he's done, to go from journeyman to No. 1 option — and remain consistent — is worth noting.
He's played more games this season than in his previous 3 NBA seasons combined.

Here are the highlights from tonight's gem:
Wood is having a great second half of the season but will be a free agent once the season ends.
