Take him: Wood is a stretch 4 who looked really good in draft workouts. He's very long and averaged nearly three blocks per game. Good frame and can still put a ton of weight on.

Don't take him: When asked about Wood, Grizzlies coaches were concerned with his lack of ability to play inside. Doesn't have great footwork, strength or much of a post game. Extremely skinny and will get pushed around in the NBA.

Notes: Worked out with the Grizzlies. Wood can really shoot it and score. He's only 19, so there's a lot of time for his body to develop.
