Cavaliers trade Hood to Trail Blazers

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

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

Among those players of interest is 26-year-old Rodney Hood out of Cleveland who appears to be on the trading block. He'll get a chance to do more with Portland.

Since Hood was on a one-year qualifying offer with the Cavs, he had to okay to move to Portland, but the trade means he rescinds his Bird rights.

Hood averaged 10.8 points and 1.4 assists per game with the Cavs last season and was averaging 12.2 points and 2 assists this season with the team.

Hood waived his no-trade clause, paving the way for him to join the 32-20 Blazers, who are now fourth in the Western Conference.




Hood will give Portland some more scoring punch and can take some pressure off guards Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. However, the 6-foot-8 forward never fully fit in with the Cavs, and after starting Cleveland's first playoff game, he was pulled from the rotation by then-coach Tyronn Lue.

Stauskas, meanwhile, is moving onto his fifth team since being drafted by the Kings with the eighth overall pick in 2014 while Baldwin was playing on a two-way contract. He was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in July 2015, with the Sixers dealing him to the Brooklyn Nets on December 7, 2017.

Stauskas, 25, and Baldwin, 22, have not started in a game this season. They'll trade Alec Burks before Thursday's deadline, who's playing on an expiring contract.
