Rebuilding Cavs trade forward Rodney Hood to Trail Blazers

Share

Forward Rodney Hood will head to Portland, while guards Nik Stauskas, Wade Baldwin and two future second-round picks will go to Cleveland. He also can not carry a team in any consistent way, or, really, be counted on as a wingman for whoever happens to be the alpha scorer.

Stauskas appeared in 44 games with the Blazers this season, averaging 6.1 points in 15 minutes.

According to ESPN's Bobby Marks, the Cavs are now turning their attention to Burks, who likely will no longer be a Cavalier after the trade deadline.

He'll give more scoring punch to the Trail Blazers, who are 32-20 and have the fourth-best record in the Western Conference.

He was a 2014 first-round pick of Utah.

During the 37th over of the innings bowled by Kedar Jadhav, Neesham went for the sweep but ended up missing the ball completely. Martin Guptill has been ruled out of the T20 worldwide series against India , after failing to recover from a back injury.

The Cavaliers, third-worst in the league at 11-42, are in a rebuilding campaign after losing LeBron James to free agency and the Los Angeles Lakers last July.

Baldwin, 22, was selected 17th overall by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2016 out of Vanderbilt, but has just one career start. A restricted free agent last summer with hopes of a long-term contract, Hood ended up accepting a one-year, $3.47 million qualifying offer from the Cavs on September 9.

In parts of two seasons with the Trail Blazers, Baldwin IV averaged 3.0 points, 1.0 rebound, 0.7 assists and 7.6 minutes in 23 games. His career average is 3.1 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 56 games.

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