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.
