From GM Marcgasaucey:

Not often do teams find franchise center pieces at the next to last pick in the first round but Wood has by far the most potential of anyone left on the board, in my eyes having the tools to become at best a poor man's Kevin Durant and at worst a nice backup big who can come in, knock down mid range shots and be a great defender. He's got athleticism in bunches, to pair with a 7'3 wingspan and the immediate defensive impact he can provide already has me salivating. The main concern for Wood is can he bulk up so as to avoid being pushed around by NBA bigs, as he only weighs 216 lbs. Although he only shot 28% from beyond the arc his form is decent enough to suggest he can develop an outside jumper later in his career which the Nets could desperately use as their current bigs Mason Plumlee and Brook Lopez provide no floor spacing whatsoever. Coupled with his great length and athleticism, Wood was a no brainer at this pick.

We're down to the last pick of the 1st round! Up next to finish us out is bstubbs and the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors at #30!
