The Portland Trail Blazers agreed to a trade to acquire Cleveland Cavaliers forward Rodney Hood on Sunday, league sources told ESPN.

The Blazers will send the Cavaliers two second-round picks, one in 2021 and one in 2023, along with the expiring contracts of guards Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin IV, sources said.
Decent little move probably.

The Cavs have turned Korver, Hood, Hill and Dekker into 7 draft picks.

1 first round and 6 2nd rounders. That's something, at least.

The Sixers championship caliber ascension in contrast to the Pels second failed rebuild around AD is interesting to compare.

Yet somehow Sam Hinkie is unemployed and Dell Demps is closing in on a ten year anniversary with the team.

Plus why trade now?

That team is a clown show and Magic and AD/Klutch/Lebron's attempted public hustle just made the locker room worse, decent to fair chance they don't even make the playoffs.

Why trade them AD for first rounders and trash now when you can get that same first rounder in the Summer and it will be much better? Plus Boston can get into the mix and you'll know whether the Knicks will get the number one pick.

Iirc, Boston knows that ad won’t resign with them. Lakers are gonna add Carmelo. That team is getting swept in the first if they even make the playoffs. Fultz is going to Orlando for Jonathan Simmons and picks. Kanter got bought out and Boston is looking to pick him up. Wes is in Indiana now.

e: bucks dealt Stanley immediately for Mirotic and now New Orleans has a bunch of unprotected picks from Washington in 2020 and 2021 :whew

Rondo hit a game-winning buzzer beater, then hugged Lebron James at midcourt to allow the Lakers to defeat Kyrie Irving's Boston Celtics.

That statement would've seemed so weird 5 years ago.

Benson has been angry over the Davis trade demand and her belief that "outside forces" are trying to push the franchise into decisions that don't make sense, league sources said.

Her mandate has been to "take back control from outside forces," one league source told ESPN. Benson has been adamant with the organization about finding a pathway to sustainable winning in one of the league's smallest markets and plans to be aggressive in pursuing the best available candidates to oversee basketball operations, league sources said.

"We will immediately begin the process of restructuring our basketball operations department," Benson said. "This will include a comprehensive, but confidential, search aided by outside consultants to identify a new leader of our basketball operations, directly reporting to me."

Cross-sports venting:
I have accepted that the Bulls are a joke. The Reinsdorf family will own the team forever and the Bulls will be terrible until they luck into a generational talent again.

However, everybody thought that the White Sox were Jerry's favorite child. But as it turns out they let a deal for one of the best free agents to ever play the game slip away because Jerry Reinsdorf didn't like paying him when he would have been 92 years old.

And they say you can't take it with you. :girlaff

The Los Angeles Lakers and free agent Carmelo Anthony are pausing talks on a possible contract agreement unless the franchise makes a turn back toward pursuit of Western Conference playoffs contention, league sources told ESPN.

The Lakers had been leaning toward signing Anthony for the rest of the season -- until losses in four of the past five games left the organization and Anthony's camp wondering if it made sense to bring the veteran into an unsettled environment with suddenly so little chance of making the playoffs, league sources said.
