The NBA media didn't believe that it took long for a team to sign a great center as Christian Wood, but the word is that is difficult to work with, and it has made sense as he has been in seven different teams so far.

But the Lakers believe they can make it work, as Anthony Davis and coach Darvin Ham have already worked with him before, Also Wood is motivated to increase his value in LA and to win a championship title.

And now it has been revealed the real reason why Wood left the Mavs wasn't his attitude, but the head coach was the one who never wanted him on his team in the first place.

With information by ESPN Dallas moved a first-round pick in a deal with the Houston Rockets before the 2022-23 season to acquire Wood, who ended up playing mainly a bench role for Dallas. “Straight up, Jason Kidd did not want Christian Wood,” ESPN’s Tim MacMahon said. “That trade was made without J-Kidd signing off on it.”

 

What Christian Wood brings to the Lakers' table

Wood has proven that he can score the ball at a high rate in recent seasons, averaging 16.6 points per game for the Mavericks in the 2022-23 campaign. Before that, Wood averaged 17.9 points per game for Houston in the 2021-22 season and 21.0 points per game in 41 contests in the 2020-21 campaign (also for the Rockets).
