Like another player on our list, Rodney Hood has a player contract, so, like he’s done in the past, he’ll have to bet on himself. This past season, as an influential part of the Portland Trail Blazers, Hood took his game to not a new but a different level.
While at one point in his career he was averaging almost 15 points per game, Hood, this current season, is averaging 11.0 per game. What’s most impressive about Hood’s play is his percentages from deep, nearing 50% from downtown.
The Warriors could certainly use a sharpshooter on their roster, and Hood would be a quintessential addition to their bench. He’s a solid candidate to split the over $17 million trade exception for.
The left-handed 6-foot-8 small forward has proven himself as a scorer. While his attitude with the Cavaliers, aggression and defense are all still question marks, Hood should rise to the challenge if given even by the Warriors.
Hood would be a quality addition to this team if he declines that player option.
