Cavs’ David Griffin Says Rodney Hood Will Surprise Fans

Published

on

The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to build a new foundation after the free agent departure of LeBron James, who signed with the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this summer, and general manager David Griffin believes that one player in particular will surprise fans.

Griffin believes that Rodney Hood has a lot of potential and can establish himself as a core part of the Cavs roster.

“Cavs fans are going to see the best of Rodney Hood, because he’s capable of being what they need him to be within that framework of expectation” Griffin said, during an appearance on Wine and Gold Talk Podcast.

“He’s uber-talented; but when it’s put-up or shut up and the only thing that’s going to mark success is winning a championship, he doesn’t have that level of confidence yet,” Griffin stated. “But I think this Cavs team is going to let him find that in much the same way that he was so good with Utah [Jazz]. Members of his coaching staff told members of our coaching staff the year before I left (2017), that he was more important to them than Gordon Hayward,” Griffin said.

It appears that the Cavs are looking to invest, long-term, in Hood and will likely try to lock him up with a long-term deal sooner rather than later.

Love underwent surgery on his injured toe at the beginning of November and he was initially projected to be available to return around Christmas, but now his projected timetable of return seems to be the middle of January.

With one of the worst records in the NBA, Cleveland can afford to take their time with Love and bring him back slowly.

Cavs’ Kevin Love Talks About Bigger Purpose in Life, Other Than Basketball

Published

Cleveland Cavaliers veteran forward Kevin Love believes that his life has a greater purpose beyond being a productive and successful player in the National Basketball Association and is embracing his role as the league’s unofficial ambassador on mental health.

“I feel like I have a purpose, for the greater good,” Love said, according to The Athletic’s Joe Vardon. “For the first 10 years, for better or worse, that’s what I felt like for basketball. Learning what I needed to learn. Now I’m just starting to work on myself off the court. That’s going to lead to helping people and paying it forward. I think it is good to be busier when you’re working, putting the same time into things that are super valuable.”
