Blazers acquire Hood from Cavs for Stauskas, Baldwin, picks

Neil Olshey Rodney Hood

In exchange for Hood, the Cavs will acquire guards Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin, as well as two future second-round picks, according to the report. Through 44 games, the Canadian is averaging 6.1 points in 15.3 minutes per game. Previously a two-way roster player, he was signed to a standard National Basketball Association contract with Portland on March 12, 2018.

Hood, drafted in the first round by the Utah Jazz in 2014, will give Portland some more scoring punch and can take some pressure off guards Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.

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.

Baldwin, 22, was selected 17th overall by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2016 out of Vanderbilt, but has just one career start.

Snow in San Francisco? Mild cities don't escape winter storm
The likelihood of precipitation is low but that would be the likely precipitation type IF precipitation were falling. Along with cold temperatures, winds will be gusty, reducing visibility in spots and making it feel even colder.


Baldwin has played in 16 games for the Trail Blazers this season. Hood averaged 11.7 points in 26 minutes.

Hood came to Cleveland from Utah in the massive roster overhaul at the deadline last February.

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. With in-season trades of Hood, Kyle Korver, George Hill and Sam Dekker, Cleveland has acquired seven draft picks - including a first-rounder and six second-round choices.

"It's good to know people appreciate you", Hood said at shootaround Saturday morning.
