ANALYSIS: Wood has been in the trade rumor mill for a long time, and this deal places him on a Mavericks team with championship aspirations. The 26-year-old averaged 17.9 points and 10.3 rebounds per game in 2021-22 while shooting 39.0% from beyond the arc.
Dallas, meanwhile, sends back several reserves who did not factor into the playoff rotation, along with a first-round pick that the Rockets can use to bolster its young core.
