Report: Knicks Knicks pursue Christian Wood in free agency

The Detroit Pistons Center forward Christian Wood is one of the great stories this season. Undrafted in 2015, who played for five teams in his young career. But this time he found a team that gives him a chance to showcase his talent. Christian Wood already has 62 games in Detroit Pistons surpassing 51 games for the last two years. With an average of 13.1 points, and 6.3 rebounds per game.

The offseason is yet to schedule after the pandemic coronavirus, but when it starts the Knicks will likely chase him according to Ian Begley of SNY.tv. A source tells Begley that the Knicks have been monitoring Wood for much of the 2019/20 season, which suggests the team had its eye on him before Leon Rose was hired as president of basketball operations. 

Players like Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson, and Maurice Harkless likely on their way out after this season. The Knicks had enough cap space to sign marquee free agent this summer.

The Detroit Pistons has an early bird right with Christian Wood and likely to make an effort just to retain his service. The center had a career-high of 32 points in the last game against the Philadelphia Sixers. Wood had 12 starts, also with 12 double-doubles.

He’s the third NBA player positive tested with coronavirus disease.
