According to Adrian Wojnarowski the Utah Jazz have traded Rodney Hood to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose in a three-team deal. They will send Joe Johnson to the Sacramento Kings

There had been multiple rumors about Rodney Hood being moved somewhere at the deadline with the Jazz receiving a lot of interest. The Jazz will also waive Derrick Rose.

Utah comes away from the trade with a starting caliber small-forward that can also play some small-ball power forward next to Rudy Gobert. It’s difficult to see a young talent like Hood leave but he would have received some big offers in free agency that Utah would have difficulty matching.

Cleveland now bolsters its roster with a solid combo-guard in George Hill and a young talented wing in Rodney Hood who played four season for the Utah Jazz.

Cleveland also sends Iman Shumpert to the Kings and relieves themselves of the George Hill contract.
