The Portland Trail Blazers have agreed to a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Portland has agreed to a deal to acquire Cleveland forward Rodney Hood for guards Nik Stauskas, Wade Baldwin and two future second-round picks, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 3, 2019
Hood had to agree to trade to Blazers, because he had signed a one-year qualifying offer with Cavs. He was enthusiastic enough about joining Portland to waive his Bird Rights. Blazers could still re-sign him using an exception this summer. https://t.co/Lx59mSmTqy— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 3, 2019
Forward Rodney Hood will head to Portland, while guards Nik Stauskas, Wade Baldwin and two future second-round picks will go to Cleveland.
The Blazers (32-20) are currently the fourth seed in the West. According to Wojnarowski, Hood was one of the "most pursued rotation wings" available on the trade market.
