Rockets were looking to move Christian Wood to clear playing time for Alperen Sengun and likely the No. 3 overall pick, whether that’s Paolo Banchero or Chet Holmgren. They pounced on chance to acquire a first-round pick (and no long-term salary) in the process.— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) June 16, 2022
This shouldn't come as a surprise, as Wood has been rumored to be traded for quite some time.
