  • Rodney Hood’s tenure with Cavaliers now finished after trade to Portland never went as planned

The Cavaliers have announced their trade of Rodney Hood to the Portland Trail Blazers, and in the process, have waived guard Kobi Simmons. 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.

Hood averaged 10.8 points and 1.4 assists per game with the Cavs last season and was averaging 12.2 points and 2 assists this season with the team. The Blazers are 32-20 and fourth in the Western Conference.

The Cavs have acquired six second-round draft picks, and one first-rounder, since the start of the season. It's possible they'll deal Alec Burks or J.R. Smith before Thursday's deadline.

Canada's Stauskas, 25, averaged 6.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists with the Trail Blazers this season. Baldwin, the No. 17 pick by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2016, has mostly played a deep reserve role for Portland.

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. He will be an unrestricted free agent in 2019 as he signed a one-year qualifying offer with the Cavs in the 2018 offseason. In a Cavs jersey he averaged 11.7 points and 2.5 rebounds in 26.8 minutes per outing. In 16 games for the Blazers, Baldwin (6-4 and 200) averaged 1.9 points, shooting.303 from the field and.222 from 3-point range.
