New Houston Rockets big man Christian Wood has quickly made his presence felt in H-Town. The impressive 25-year-old has balled out in the preseason so far, earning him some massive praise from teammate Eric Gordon.

As far as Gordon is concerned, Christian Wood's well-rounded game shows shades of a young Anthony Davis.

Christian Wood dropped a strong double-double of 27 points and 10 rebounds in Houston's 128-106 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday. The 6-foot-10 slotman shot 10-for-18 from the field and drained two of his six attempts from past the arc.

Eric Gordon, meanwhile, is quite familiar with AD considering they were teammates with the New Orleans Pelicans from 2012 to 2016. While The Brow's resume is certainly leaps and bounds greater than Christian Wood's is right now, it's not hard to see why Gordon thinks the pair are similar in a way.

Both players possess a similar athletic, wiry frame complemented by a great length. Christian Wood's versatile skillset may not be as polished as AD, but he does bring similar traits to the table. The UNLV alum can play inside and out and also create his own shots off the dribble. Sound familiar?

Davis, of course, was deemed as a star from the get-go when he was picked first overall in the 2012 draft.  Wood's path to the NBA couldn't have been more different. He went undrafted in 2015 and bounced around four different teams before his breakout year with the Detroit Pistons last year. Christian Wood got paid this offseason, accepting a 3-year, $41 million deal with the Rockets.

Given the uncertainty with the Rockets' future this upcoming season, Christian Wood will get a chance to get an even bigger role. As far as Eric Gordon is concerned, this young stud will be ready for the challenge. Having John Wall along for the ride certainly can't hurt.
