3.Miami Heat

You may be noticing a trend here, but I'm firmly convinced Wood needs to play alongside an elite defender, and that would obviously be the case with Bam Adebayo in Miami.

I'd consider the Heat more of a dark horse option than those first two, but don't rule them out just because Christian Wood doesn't seem to match that "Heat Culture" we hear so much about.

Kevin Love's playoff run was fun, but having Love and Thomas Bryant as your primary depth pieces up front is not a spot you really want to be in as a team hoping to return to NBA Finals contention. Wood may not be a culture fit, but that could be a necessary evil to bolster this unit.

With mostly Eastern Conference teams seeming to be in contention to add Wood, getting a jump on the betting markets could give you a big edge if he does sign there.

And if you want to place that bet, DraftKings might be the best place to do it. Their welcome offer is one of the few in the industry that pays out as soon as you place your bet, instead of making you wait for it to settle. So if you wager $5 on an Eastern Conference Finals winner, you'll get your $150 bonus instantly so you can start betting with it right away.
