Christian Wood, the Pistons breakout star from last season, will not return to the franchise, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Wood is joining the Houston Rockets on a three-year, $41-million deal.
Wojnarowski reports the deal will be completed via a sign-and-trade between the Pistons and Rockets.
Wood broke out onto the scene in his third year in the league and was about the only bright spot for Detroit this past season. The 24-year old now joins a franchise in limbo with the futures of James Harden and Russell Westbrook filled with uncertainty.
Wood averaged 13.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game last season. he shot 56.7 percent from the field and 38.6 percent from the 3-point line.
