Video: If Christian Wood walks in free agency what will it mean for the Pistons next season?

New, comments

There seems to be mutual interest in a return, but Christian Wood is sure to have many suitors

NBA: Utah Jazz at Detroit Pistons Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Christian Wood is heading into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. Wood seems to be interested in re-signing with Detroit, and the Pistons seem to want him back in the Motor City.

Wood averaged 13.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, while shooting 56.7% from the field and 38.6% from beyond the arc. The 24-year-old really took off after the trade of Andre Drummond, playing major minutes as a starter and the focal point of the Pistons’ offense.

In 13 games after the Drummond trade, Wood averaged 22.8 points, 9.9 rebounds, while shooting 56.2% from the field and 40% from beyond the arc on 4.2 attempts. The Pistons went 1-12 in these games but Wood couldn’t take much of the blame for the horrendous record.

Due to this breakout and the mutual interest in a reunion, it seems likely that Wood is going to be suiting up in the Little Caesars Arena next season.

However, what if Wood doesn’t return? What if the Detroit Pistons let Wood walk in free agency?

In this video, I will talk about what this would mean for the Detroit Pistons, not only moving forward, but what it says about the last 10 months of decision making by the Ed Stefanski-led front office.
