West Rumors: Mavs, Christian Wood, Jazz, Lakers


  • Center Christian Wood hasn’t been made available in trade talks, but some opposing teams think that could change here soon, per Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report.
  • While Wood has been overall productive, he’s come off the bench and “publicly and privately petitioned for a bigger role,” Haynes wrote.
  • Throw in the fact he’s on an expiring contract and you can see why rivals may think he’ll be available ahead of the deadline in February. Wood was acquired in a trade with the Rockets before the season.
  • Several sources have told Hoops Wire the Mavs are indeed involved in talks as they look to build on last year’s run to the West finals. But indicated that Wood has not been part of those talks.
