Trail Blazers Acquire Hood From Cavs

Rodney Hood’s tenure with Cavaliers now finished after trade to Portland never went as planned

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Blazers have acquired forward Rodney Hood for Nik Stauskas, Wade Baldwin and two future second-round picks. 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. Bench scorer Jordan Clarkson, rookie Collin Sexton, and second-year man Cedi Osman each score more per game than Hood, while Kevin Love, the Cavs'.

He'll give more scoring punch to the Trail Blazers, who are 32-20 and have the fourth-best record in the Western Conference.

Mired in a rebuilding season forced by the free agency departure of LeBron James and Kevin Love's foot injury in the preseason opener that required November 2 surgery, the Cavs continue to build an impressive treasure chest.

The Cavaliers are continuing to add draft assets and are still pursuing trades for guard Alec Burks and JR Smith before Thursday's trade deadline. He is averaging 12.2 points on 43 percent shooting from the floor this season.

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 Cavaliers, third-worst in the league at 11-42, are in a rebuilding campaign after losing LeBron James to free agency and the Los Angeles Lakers last July.

It was just a matter of time before the Cavs were to trade away Hood. "Being a part of a trade doesn't always mean you're not a good player - it means they want to do something different for their organization". It's basketball. I'm healthy.
