Christian Wood is in his seventh season in the NBA and is in the last year of a three-year, $41 million contract. He has already proven himself as a player. The Dallas Mavericks center wasn’t always a sure thing, though. In the 2015 NBA Draft, when Wood was expected to be picked late in the first round or early in the second, he wasn’t taken at all.
Even though Wood’s night was already rough, his girlfriend at the time took advantage of it to kick him when he was already down. Wood said that instead of being helpful and staying with him, he had dropped her off at the airport that night and would never see her again. She probably wishes she hadn’t made that choice, though, since Wood will have made more than $45 by the end of the season. Also, when he becomes a free agent, he is likely to get an even bigger contract.
