Christian Wood is a free agent this offseason, after a break-out season with the Detroit Pistons. The versatile forward/center is expected to draw interest from several teams looking to improve their front-line.

According to Ian Begley of SNY, Wood is on the Knicks’ radar since February being among the teams that are interested in signing the young big as a free agent.

“Many teams were monitoring Wood ahead of the trade deadline, but New York was one of the few teams watching the Pistons regularly after the deadline – an indication that the Knicks had a high level of interest in the forward.”

The Pistons’ forward was in the midst of a breakout year during the 2019/2020, which was cut short due to the pandemic in March.

After Detroit shipped Andre Drummond to the Cleveland Cavaliers at the trade deadline, Wood moved to the starting lineup and averaged 23 points, 10 rebounds, and shot 40 percent from beyond the arc as a starter.
