Player Bio

Christian Wood was born in Long Beach, California in 1995. He is the son of Jeanette Stewart. He started his high school basketball career at Knight High School in Palmdale, California. Just before his senior year, Wood transferred to Findlay College Prep in Henderson, Nevada. Wood led Findlay to 54 straight high school victories, where Wood's Pilots also won an ESPN National High School Invitational championship in 2012. Wood's favorite food is sushi. Fans can follow the 6-foot-10 big man on both Twitter and Instagram (@Chriswood_5). Wood spent two seasons playing for coach Dave Rice at UNLV from 2013-15. As a freshman, he mainly came off the bench in support of Khem Birch and Roscoe Smith. The 6-foot-11 forward made two starts in 30 games and scored in double digits three times. Wood's playing time was highly variable, and he finished with averages of 4.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 13.0 minutes. Birch and Smith moved on after the season and Wood became the go-to player for the Rebels. He started 32 games a sophomore and provided 15.7 points to go along with 10.0 rebounds and 2.7 blocks, which were both second in the conference. Wood scored at least 20 points in a game eight times. He led UNLV past Fresno State with 27 points, 19 rebounds and seven blocks. Despite 21 points and eight boards from Wood, the Rebels were eliminated from the conference tournament in the second round. After the season, the forward declared for the 2015 NBA Draft but went undrafted before signing a contract with the 76ers in September.
