  • Rodney Hood making a layup against Chicago was traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday to the Portland Trail Blazers

According to Wojnarowski, Hood was one of the "most pursued rotation wings" available on the trade market. He'll get a chance to do more with Portland.

The Portland Trail Blazers have acquired swingman Rodney Hood from the Cleveland Cavaliers in a three-player trade. The teams agreed to the deal Sunday and completed a conference call with the National Basketball Association on Monday.

Hood, a five-year veteran out of Duke, is averaging 12.2 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game this season while shooting 42.7 percent from the field and 36.3 from long range.

Hood had to agree to the trade because he signed a one-year, $3.4 million qualifying offer last summer with Cleveland, which granted him veto rights.

The Cavs are collecting draft assets following a four-year run to the Finals.

With the league's trade deadline Thursday at 3 p.m., the Cavs could also move guard Alec Burks.

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

Simmons is 6-foot-5 and signed a 10-day contract with the Cavs Jan. 27.

Canada's Stauskas, 25, averaged 6.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists with the Trail Blazers this season. The Michigan product was in his first season with the Blazers, having also played for the Sacramento Kings, Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets. He is in his third season and has played in a total of 56 games with the Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies.
