your post history is funny skimming over it. you literally write the same three things in every thread, not a single time have you made a solid recommendation or write up (couldn’t really take lo

Guys he’s a journeyman, drop now before it’s too late.

Drummond is perfect for the Knicks. He fits horribly next to Randle, clogs the floor so no one can get to the rack without a help defender easily getting there. He doesn't contribute to winning. He is

Idk about Sekou. Way too raw. 5 PF/36 and he fouled out last night. I’d pump the brakes a little.

Man was matched up against Lebron and AD, of course he would struggle lol hes a rookie with massive upside. Pistons stink and hes playing big minutes I dont know what else people want

Get both if you can.  I had picked Wood up with news of the Drummond trade and really wanted Doumbouya too, but hesitated even this morning when I had the chance.  He was just picked up by the owner that dropped Blake for him.

I don't think it's obvious by any stretch.  We know Woods can put up numbers when given playing time and it looks like Doubouya's game is very fantasy friendly as well.  I like Sekou's 3's and usage while on the court, but banking on Woods having more blocks, which is more important for my team build.  Either way, we don't know if Drummond will get traded, we don't know if Griffin will completely shut it down, we don't know if Morris will take most of Sekou's minutes away when he's back on the court.  Just rolling the dice...

If Bruno Fernando is a threat to playing time then he must be second coming of prime Kareem...


If a trade happens where they get a young promising big under a friendly contract in return, then that would be a threat to Wood’s value. If the value they bring to the team (on and off the court) is remotely comparable, there’s every incentive to develop the player that’ll stick around for sure.

It wouldn’t take Wood << Bruno for Wood to be threatened for playing time, as you have suggested sarcastically. Personally I don’t feel as optimistic as the fantasy writers and some of the posters here and that the risks are understated, but it’s also fine to agree to disagree.

Curious as to why every one is writing him off if someone young and promising comes, isn't wood only 24? He's young himself

 

Seriously, haven't the previous posts covered this enough?

Also, realistic expectations =/= writing him off. He's a low risk and potential high reward stash, and the subject of debate is how clear his path to minutes are when/if Drummond is traded.

Think he has a better ROS outlook than Brandon Clarke?

No. Brandon Clarke has legit stud potential when he gets unleashed.

 

Wood over the last 2 weeks with 24 mpg is ranked 165 in 9-cat. Clarke, in the same duration, with lesser minutes at 21 mpg is ranked 86.

 

Clarke all day, by a margin.

Went to grab Wood and just saw PJ Washington got dropped and it made my quick decision a little trickier smh

I would grab PJ Washington over Wood. I am not that sold on Wood. He looks clueless out on the court and has been a journeyman for a reason.

Journeyman is a moot irrelevant point, you probably missed on Richaun Holmes because of the same argument

Richaun Holmes is one success story out of many journeymen that has amounted to being a mediocre player. I have been watching Wood play and I just don't think he has the tools to breakout like Holmes. We shall see though.
