Cavs’ Rodney Hood Hoping for Long-Term Deal

Published

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Rodney Hood is hoping that he can work out a long-term deal with the team after formally accepting his one-year $3.4M qualifying offer from the Cavaliers earlier this month.

“I believe strongly in myself that after this year, I’ll be able to make Cleveland my home and we’ll get a better deal next summer,” Hood said, according to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com.

“Just because he signed the qualifying offer, he’s not on the first train out of here,” Hood’s agent Travis King said. “He plans to stay in Cleveland.”

Hood didn’t mesh with the Cavs roster last year after coming over in a trade with the Utah Jazz, and he was seeking $10-$12 million annually on the free agent market, which didn’t materialize for him.

“At first I kind of felt bad for myself, but then it was like I don’t want to feel this feeling again, sitting on the bench, or playing 8-10 minutes a game,” Hood said. “I want to be a big part of a really good team, so that was my focus this whole summer.”

“My twins were born here,” Hood said. “I like the community, even though I haven’t been out there a lot. I want to make this a home. It’s just didn’t happen this summer. That’s how I look at it.”
