Wood To Get Bucks’ Final Roster Spot?

The Bucks will keep Christian Wood on the roster after a strong preseason performance, tweets Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated. Wood was believed to be competing with Tim Frazier for the final spot, but a source tells Spears that the team has made its choice.

The 23-year-old power forward/center signed with Milwaukee shortly before the start of training camp last month. If he does make the roster, the Bucks would be Wood’s third team in three years after playing 17 games for the Sixers in 2016/17 and 13 games with the Hornets last season. Wood has also spent significant time in the G League over the last three years, playing in Delaware and Greensboro.

Wood has a two-year, non-guaranteed contract that will pay him $1,512,601 this season and $1,645,357 in 2019/20 if he remains on the Bucks’ roster.

Milwaukee cleared the path for Wood with a couple of high-profile cuts this week. The team waived Shabazz Muhammad on Thursday, then parted ways with Tyler Zeller earlier today.

    He deserves the last spot. I hope he doesn’t just sit on the bench.

    The release of Tyler Zeller makes this likely in my mind.
