Given his salary it's likely he had multiple offers but wanted Houston due to Westbrook and Harden (at the time).
Think it's possible his agent did a good job and ultimately got Wood included in the Draft Day deal we'd already arranged.
That way we can claim we got some kind of asset for losing our guy while the Rockets can argue they worked the cap well and landed a quality free agent despite not having cap room.
Idk, maybe it's just me but I'd like to think our FO is no longer dumb af and out of tune with the rest of the league.MrBigShot wrote:If he was worried Wood would ruin the tank then why sign Grant & Plumlee? Two fairly seasoned NBA players ready to contribute from day 1, and in Grant's case ripe for an opportunity to take on a bigger role offensively than in Denver.
We literally did this same song and dance when Wood went on insta and said there was more to the story but people shrugged it off. Maybe Weaver just straight up lowballed Wood because he underestimated how talented he is.

My opinion is that Weaver lowballed Wood because he did a poor job evaluating his talent.
