Osie Leon Wood, III, was born March 25, 1962, and is currently a referee in the NBA. He has officiated 600+ regular season games and 3 play-off games.
Prior to becoming an NBA referee, Wood was a shooting guard in the NBA. He was chosen 10th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 1st round of the 1984 draft. During his career, he played for the 76ers, Bullets, Nets, Spurs, Hawks and Kings. He played in 274 games in his career and won a gold medal as a member of the 1984 US Olympic basketball team.
When not officiating, Wood helps train younger officials, which is unfortunate.
