Christian Wood in Dallas, a superb inspiration for the Mavericks?

With this trade between Texan teams, the Mavs may have achieved a big blow: they recover a fairly complete interior, which should do its stats without problem, relieving Luka Doncic and Jalen Brunson of offensive responsibilities so far little dispersed. For his part, Christian Bois changes dimension by finally joining an ambitious team.

This is the news that we were not necessarily expecting, even less while waiting for the match at the top of the next night: the pivot of the Rockets Christian Wood will therefore join the Mavs, who have dropped the giant Boban Marjanovic, Sterling Brown , Marquese Chriss, Trey Burke and the 26th choice of the 2022 Draft. Eliminated in the conference final by the Warriors (4-1) despite a good run, the Mavs have hit their ceiling: few threats apart from Luka Doncic and Jalen Brunson, as well as an interior sector that is far too limited. It was therefore expected that Dallas would position itself on an interior this summer, and they did not take long to find it. An operation that looks like a winning move for everyone. Yes, Houston will be able to make room for young people by rebuilding its interior sector thanks to the draft, and the Mavs recover one of the missing pieces of their roster, without a demented counterpart leaving the franchise.

For his part, Mr. Bois leaves the Rockets. A team he had joined in the hope of playing the leading roles alongside a certain Barbu. The story went wrong since James Harden left the Texan ship, sunk in the shallows of the West since its departure. In a context of tanking, Christian managed to prove his individual value by chaining cards and leaving more than interesting lines of stats. At 26, this trade in a team like Dallas seems to come at the right time. Able to come out of seasons with almost 20 points and 10 rebounds on average in Houston, in addition to a good 3-point address for his position (around 38% on average over the last three seasons), the interior will have to prove that he can contribute statistically to a team that is aiming for the top of the rankings. The Mavericks will need his impact in the racket, an attribute that has been lacking to aim even higher in these Playoffs. But when you see what friend Christian has managed to produce next to the guys who served as his teammates in Houston, you can’t even imagine the carnage if his association with the Slovenian works. In any case, this is the scenario dreamed up by the management of Dallas, which has just made a move already announced as one of the smartest of this summer.

Christian Wood in Dallas, it’s done and we can’t wait to see what it will give. The boy was a hit in one of the worst teams in the League, we must now confirm on the floor above. But something tells us that with Luka in distribution, the pivot could feast. In any case, the offseason starts well for the Mavs.
