The Houston Rockets made a big splash to add Christian Wood to their roster. The franchise will get taller by adding the versatile forward/center in the squad.

Also, Wood could become the beginning of a bidding for James Harden and Russell Westbrook. Both superstars asked for a trade a few days back.

Wood would be the new face for the Rockets, but he had a firsthand experience playing with James Harden in the past weeks.

In particular, It appears that Harden and Wood have already played together in recent weeks during pickup games, per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. 

“Though Wood’s rise from having to play his way onto the Pistons roster before the season to coveted free agent after made him a bit of a sudden sensation, Harden should know his game well. He and Wood played together in Los Angeles pickup games this offseason.”

Wood averaged 13.1 points on 56.7% shooting and 38.6% on 3-pointers. He also had 6.3 rebounds in 21.4 minutes per game in Detroit last season.
