Trail Blazers acquire Hood from Cavs

The Portland Trail Blazers acquired guard Rodney Hood from the Cleveland Cavaliers for guards Wade Baldwin IV, Nik Stauskas and two future second-round draft picks.
Hood was traded to the Cavaliers at the trade deadline in 2018 in a deal that sent Derrick Rose to Utah before the Jazz waived him.
“Rodney is an accomplished NBA player that brings versatility, shot making and depth to our perimeter and will fit seamlessly into our culture and style of play,” said Blazers general manager Neil Olshey said in a statement Monday.
Hood averaged 12.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 27.4 minutes in 45 games this season for the Cavaliers.
Cleveland’s ongoing rebuilding since LeBron James left in free agency brought a stockpile of seven draft picks, including six second-rounders, in deals for Kyle Korver, George Hill, Sam Dekker and Hood.
Drafted 23rd overall in the 2014 draft out of Duke, Hood has averaged 12.8 points per game in five NBA seasons.
