The Hornets have declined their team option on Christian Wood‘s contract for next season, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports (Twitter link). Bobby Marks of the Vertical (Twitter link) notes that Charlotte had five days after the season ended to make the call on Wood’s deal.
Wood signed a two-year deal with Charlotte last offseason and had the team picked up his option, he would have made slightly over $1.47MM next season.
The big man only played in 13 games with the Hornets, scoring just 35 points while grabbing 29 rebounds in 107 minutes of action this season. He also spent time playing for the Greensboro Swarm, Charlotte’s D-League affiliate.
