Al Wood, G/F
Drafted with the fourth overall pick of the 1981 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks, Al Wood came to the Dallas Mavericks through a trade with the Seattle Supersonics.
Wood only played one season for the Mavericks (1987) and contributed mostly as a bench player and averaged 6.6 points and 12.2 minutes per game, serving as a backup to Rolando Blackman.
Wood was selected to compete on the 1980 United States Men’s Basketball team that unfortunately did not compete due to Jimmy Carter’s decision to boycott the Olympics in Moscow.
