Former Jazzman Rodney Hood is traded from Cavaliers to Trail Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers have traded to acquire forward Rodney Hood from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

After the Rodney Hood trade, Cleveland's focus now shifts to Smith and Burks.

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.


In his short time in Cleveland, Hood averaged 11.7 points (on 43.2 percent shooting), 2.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 0.8 steals in a total of just 66 games played.

Tells you all you need to know about the Hood experiment in Cleveland, over now that he's being traded to the Portland Trailblazers for two players on expiring contracts and two second-round picks.

According to ESPN's Bobby Marks, the Cavs have turned Kyle Korver, George Hill, Sam Dekker and Hood into one first-round draft pick and six second-rounders. Baldwin, 22, played in 16 games for the Blazers and averaged 1.9 points. That allowed him to not only become an unrestricted free agent this July, but also afforded him the chance to veto trades that didn't appeal to his interest. He signed a one-year, $3.4 million U.S. qualifying offer last summer. 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. Hood averaged 11.7 points in 26 minutes.
