        In the OKC / Milwaukee game, it should be noted that Wood played 31 minutes for the Bucks, and that the only Buck starter to play in the game was Malcolm Brogdon.

        In a game against the Bucks bench / scrubs.. P squared only hit one of 9 shots for two points.

            Not that I don't like Boucher, but yes, I think Christian Wood is the backup that got away, unfortunately.

            I've said it since the summer, that kid has been balling. Will probably have a career year. Fast, tall, athletic, can rebound and rim protect, plus shoots the 3. He's a lite version of OKC Ibaka, except he's a better rebounder and has a better handle. And he's only 23. Apparently has a bit of a temper, but with his upside I still can't believe no one has picked him up before.

              Why did/would anyone have thought we had a chance at Wood (with virtually no opportunity/money available for him). Was he with the team and I missed it?

                Yes, he came for a workout, a week before the Raptors signed Monroe.

                  Personality/attitude seems to be very, very important for masai. Everyone he brings in is super humble and low-maintenance. might have something to do with it.

                      Yes but this isn't a dating service, its a basketball team. If at worst the attitude becomes problematic then you simply flip the asset for someone else once the value reached a high peak. This is the reason why you sign a Hassan Whiteside for just a year or two and then flip him for something better.

                          I'm just stating the facts. It's pretty clear that there's a personality type he covets.

                            Yes and it has a successful recipe, where a place like Washington with its players its a disaster.

                            But it dont mean we can't have 1 or 2 guys with personality issues. Golden States just signed Demarcus Cousins and they've got Draymond Green too.

                                Seemed Wolves entire team moved about 1 foot of distance in all those clips combined
