A player outshined by newly acquired stars?
Early this seasons, Christian Wood looked like a perfect pairing alongside Dallas star Luka Doncic, as the two seemed to be dominant together on the offensive side of the court. However, since acquiring Kyrie Irving, Wood’s roll has diminished slightly in recent weeks.
It is worth the question of whether or not Wood will resign with the Mavericks this offseason or if he will feel crowded out by the star power in Dallas. In either case he is a player the Pacers should be monitoring closely. He fits a position of need for the Pacers and won’t have over-the-top interest around the league.
He has an excellent offensive skillset that the Pacers could take advantage of and could be the perfect pairing alongside of Turner who naturally plays the center and excels on the defensive end of the court.
