    His weak/selfish @$$ needs to go. On top of the character/on court issues, I see he rolled an ankle at the end of the game.

    Just highlights the need to move him while he's healthy.

    CW will never be about winning games.
    I've actually come to despise him.

    I have similar issues with him. I get so pissed off watching him that even after another game where he goes 8-12 for great efficiency i can’t help but feel like he’s a big reason why we lost.
    There’s so many little things that he doesn’t do and so many times where he’s just completely destroying the flow of the offense…

    Would you say you have grown to hate him?

    Is that supposed to sound young? We have a bunch of 19 year old kids here. Wood isn’t exactly setting a good example here for our rookies. Let him keep padding his stats til the deadline then let Stone go to work

    every time he insists on bringing the ball upcourt himself = disaster

    No we need him to continue to fill up the scoreboard with empty stats so he can be bundled in a trade for a disgruntled star.

    C’mon KAT aren’t your tired of those Minnesota winters yet?

    Christian Wood is my odd man out. If only Sengun would stop fouling, but whatever, we have Theis to back him up.

    Wood needs to go.

    It's obvious that Wood should be moved at this point. He really is a big negative imo at this point. He's one of the weakest big men in the league, doesn't even try to rim protect anymore along with his empty stats. I'm afraid the league is on to him and it will be tough to get a good return for him.

    C wood is not about winning games

    but neither are the rockets .

    yes he should go . I like sengun and theis rotation best at the 5 . So what we are thin after that ? We aren’t trying to win

    Well , who knows . Our best guys are out with covid and green is back which means “developing” him is a priority.

    Green is gonna be heavily suspect on D until next year at the earliest . Kpj is hit or miss .

    it’s tough to see how the younger guys are doing on a game to game basis , especially missing time with injury AND with pieces in and out now for covid .

    a guy like Tate can hold down the fort . But when you are down the balls of Tate and Matthews and the nasty of KMJ then ofc wood is gonna look soft . This dude is not a great player . He’s just OK and yeah I agree with OP’s sentiments .

    Nice to be in it for as long as we were . Mega shoutout to josh Christopher .

    Nwaba playing well too . I’m sure we will try to move him tho . Matthews a bit light .

    kpj /
    Gordon / green
    Tate / Christopher
    Nwaba
    Sengun /theis

    but looking at comparable contracts ... I actually don’t like a lot of the ones that match up with wood . We have to get creative

    No, it wasn't supposed to sound young just making fun of myself and the whole board and so on.

    Christian Wood is looking like a miss. Or a map. Or something **** idk just trying to be funny.

    His numbers will look good, but then you realize he gave up an unreal amount of open shots, did little on help defense and rebounding, and ruins the flow of the offense but his reluctance to set hard screens.

    Most of these things don't show up on the box score.

    KPJ unfortunately has a bit of that going as well, but he is still young with a lot of room to improve.

    Hopefully Stone doesn’t let his attempt to build good will amongst players deter him from moving Wood.

    I would rather a big man rotation of Sengun and Theis with Garuba as an emergency big.

    Why are you an empty stats guy? He blew so many defensive assignments tonight. Plus his "picks" are so damn weak.

    Plus 6 boards as a 5 against a short Lakers team is sad and really inexcusable.

    Empty stats, he's a big man version of westbrick.

    Watching games, it's quite obvious man has no pride, not always playing 100%.
    Lazy D, and never seem to get any rebounds in the clutch.

    He wants to b a flashy big man rather than one that does the dirty work.
    Trade him for picks when his value is high.

    I would accept low rebounding numbers if he at least boxed out for his teammates to grab rebounds, but this isn't the case.

    Not picking you out specifically, but it's really weird how the bad defense label is selective applied. Green's small mistakes at 19 years old get torn apart, meanwhile Wood is doing this. He seriously needed the 19 year old rookie to tell him to contest a shooter that he was already guarding.

    Wood had probably the worse defense in this entire game.
