Despite spending just under a year in the Cleveland area while playing for the Cavaliers, Hood offered a classy farewell on social media while looking ahead to his new challenge.

In exchange for Hood, the Cavs will acquire guards Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin, as well as two future second-round picks, according to the report. He appeared in one game.

TMZ reports that according to law enforcement sources, one of the actor's friends found his body at his San Fernando Valley home. John has died at age 52. "My deepest condolences go out to his family and especially his children, who I know he loves so much".

Hood, 26, joined the Cavs on February 8, 2018 after a three-team trade with the Utah Jazz and the Sacramento Kings.

It's all conjecture at this point as Cleveland would probably like to get something back for Hood in a trade instead of waiving his contract for cap relief.

"Rodney is an accomplished National Basketball Association player that brings versatility, shot making and depth to our perimeter and will fit seamlessly into our culture and style of play", said Olshey. 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 tied his career-high with 24 points in a season-opening win over LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. He also has been with Texas Legends of the NBA's G League.

While Hood isn't having his best season in Cleveland, he's still a young, serviceable guard who has shown that he can knock them down from deep. He is in his third season and has played in a total of 56 games with the Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies.
