Trail Blazers swing National Basketball Association deal with Cavs for guard Rodney Hood

Rodney Hood's tenure with Cavaliers, now finished after...

Adding talent ahead of Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline to boost their playoff push, the Portland Trail Blazers obtained guard Rodney Hood on Monday in a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

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. In 45 games this season, Hood is averaging 12.2 points on.427 shooting, 2.0 assists and 2.7 boards over 27.4 minutes a night.

He'll give more scoring punch to the Trail Blazers, who are 32-20 and have the fourth-best record in the Western Conference. However, the 6-foot-8 forward never fully fit in with the Cavs, and after starting Cleveland's first playoff game, he was pulled from the rotation by then-coach Tyronn Lue. It is unlikely that the Cavs opt to re-sign either player to an extension this summer, and this move was geared more towards giving the team more draft assets.

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.

Cleveland has added seven draft picks this season in deals for Hood, Kyle Korver, Sam Dekker and George Hill.

To make roster room, the Cavs released guard Kobi Simmons from his second 10-day contract.

Stauskas averaged 6.1 points and 15.3 minutes in 44 games for Portland this season.

Baldwin, 22, was selected 17th overall by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2016 out of Vanderbilt, but has just one career start. He has also played in six G League games this season, with the Texas Legends.
