Rodney Hood, Blazers Agree to Two-Year Deal


The Portland Trail Blazers have agreed to a two-year, $21 million deal with Rodney Hood, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports. The second of the two years is non-guaranteed.

The contract represents a significant investment from the Blazers given that Hood tore his Achilles tendon last December but Hood was an impactful player when healthy prior to doing so.

The 28-year-old wing averaged 11.0 points per game in the 21 contests prior to his injury, while shooting a staggering .493 from beyond the arc. It’s likely that number falls over the course of a full season but if the career .372 shooter is in fact trending up, he’ll be an invaluable part of Portland’s offense.

Hood can spend time at the two or three and could hop in and out of Portland’s starting lineup depending on what they want to do with Robert Covington and their frontcourt.
