Blazers Acquire Rodney Hood

Blazers Acquire Rodney Hood

In exchange for Hood, the Cavs will acquire guards Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin, as well as two future second-round picks, according to the report. 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 this season, Hood is averaging 12.2 points on.427 shooting, 2.0 assists and 2.7 boards over 27.4 minutes a night.

Despite spending only a year with the Cavs (Hood arrived in Cleveland on February 8, 2018 via three-team trade from the Utah Jazz), this did not prevent the 26-year-old from forming a precious bond with the city.

The Blazers (32-20) are now the fourth seed in the West.

Stauskas, a native of Mississauga, ON, signed a one-year deal with the Blazers in 2018 and will also be a free agent this offseason.

The 23rd overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft out of Duke, Hood spent the first three-plus seasons of his career with the Utah Jazz. It's possible they'll deal Alec Burks or J.R. Smith before Thursday's deadline. The eighth overall pick in 2014 out of MI by the Sacramento Kings, Stauskas (6-foot-6 and 205 pounds) averaged 6.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 44 games for the Blazers this season, shooting.419 from the field and.344 from 3-point range. His career average is 3.1 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 56 games. Baldwin, 22, played in 16 games for the Blazers and averaged 1.9 points. "I'm playing the game I love".
