The Dallas Mavericks acquired center Christian Wood from Houston last month in a trade that sent Boban Marjanovic, Trey Burke, Marquese Chriss, Sterling Brown and the No. 26 pick in this year’s NBA Draft to the Rockets.
“I think (Wood is) going to surprise a lot of people,” the Mavericks governor Mark Cuban told Mavs.com. “I think he’s a lot better than advertised.
“When he gets used to playing with Luka and gets used to his role, he can be a shot blocker, a rebounder, someone who can create offense and someone who can go for a lob. He’s just so, so versatile that we’re real excited to have him.”
Wood averaged 17.9 points and 10.1 rebounds in 30.8 minutes this past season for the Rockets.
