  • Rodney Hood moves from Cleveland Cavaliers to Portland Trail Blazers in three-player trade | NBA News

ESPN reports that the two teams have agreed to a trade of Hood for Portland guards Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin and two second-round picks, one in 2021 and one in 2023. He also can not carry a team in any consistent way, or, really, be counted on as a wingman for whoever happens to be the alpha scorer. In 45 games, all starts, this season, Hood averaged 12.2 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists, shooting.427 from the field, .362 on 3s and.912 from the free-throw line.

The Blazers (32-20) are now the fourth seed in the West. He tied his career-high with 24 points in a season-opening win over LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Hood, drafted in the first round by the Utah Jazz in 2014, will give Portland some more scoring punch and can take some pressure off guards Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.




Stauskas and Baldwin are also in the final year of their contracts. It's possible they'll deal Alec Burks or J.R. Smith before Thursday's deadline. Through 44 games, the Canadian is averaging 6.1 points in 15.3 minutes per game. Stauskas was signed as a free agent on July 6, 2018. He has also played in six G League games this season, with the Texas Legends. His career average is 3.1 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 56 games.

It was just a matter of time before the Cavs were to trade away Hood.

Hood signed a $3.4-million qualifying offer with the Cavaliers this summer. It's basketball. I'm healthy.
