After being stashed in anticipation, Christian Wood lived up to expectations when given the opportunity, setting himself up as a popular target as he enters free agency.
As a sub for 50 games, Wood averaged 10.9 PTS, 5.5 REBS, 0.7 ASTS, 0.7 3PTS, 0.9 BLKS and 0.5 STLS. Those numbers leapt off the boxscore over a dozen games as a starter: 21.9 PTS, 9.4 REBS, 2.3 ASTS, 1.7 3PTS, 0.8 BLKS and 0.8 STLS. The jump from 18 to 34 mpg naturally helped these advances, but Wood proved he is a worthy mid-round asset when given the chance. He could very well return to Detroit and do similar things as a starter next to Blake Griffin, just as Andre Drummond did for several seasons, but he is bound to have a number of suitors this offseason. Wood can do it all from a fantasy perspective, and a full season as a goto option with the Pistons could produce a top-40 campaign.
