Blazers reportedly add Rodney Hood in trade with Cavaliers

Cavaliers shooting guard Alec Burks could be on the move before the Feb. 7 trade deadline

By InsideHoops.com February 4, 2019 12:05 p.m. ET The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired guards Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin IV and two future second round draft picks from the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for guard Rodney Hood.

Wojnarowski notes that the Blazers could still potentially re-sign him this summer using an exception.

The Trail Blazers, 32-20, are fourth in the Western Conference, one game behind Oklahoma City and five adrift of co-leaders Denver and Golden State.

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.

Freezing rain expected Wednesday
While many of us will be tempted to stow away shovels and rock salt this week, the calendar reminds us it is still early February. National Weather Service forecasts show that the foothills could see significant snow late Monday night into Tuesday.

Between the three deals, the Cavaliers have turned their role players into one first-round pick and six second-round picks, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks.

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. His career scoring average is 6.1. The Kings selected him with the No. 8 overall pick in 2014. He also has been with Texas Legends of the NBA's G League.

Baldwin averaged 3.0 points and 1.0 rebounds in a reserve role for Portland. In 45 games, all starts, this season, Hood averaged 12.2 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists, shooting.427 from the field, .362 on 3s and.912 from the free-throw line.

He was a restricted free agent last July, but after receiving little to no interest from other teams, he accepted the Cavaliers' qualifying offer of $3.4 million for this season.
