League sources believe several teams have circled Christian Wood in free agency, including Charlotte. Pairing Westbrook after a trade with Wood would give him a pick-and-roll partner like Westbrook had in OKC, only with more spacing.
There’s talk of the Boston Celtics possibly making a move for Wood as well. The Celtics were limited in the playoffs because of their lack of impact in the frontcourt. Daniel Theis played well but lacks Wood’s versatility as a pick-and-roll partner.
Detroit has openly made it known they’re looking to take on contracts in exchange for picks and assets, but league sources maintain that doesn’t mean the Pistons won’t re-sign Wood, either.

ANALYSIS: Christian Wood put up 13.1 points and 6.3 rebounds in about 21 minutes per game with the Pistons last year. Wood is just 24 years old and had some big games last year with Detroit, including a career high of 32 points. Wood will look to get paid this offseason as he is likely to become a more significant offensive option for whoever he signs with.
