League sources believe Jazz will move Rodney Hood by the deadline

League sources believe Jazz will move Rodney Hood by the deadline

The NBA trade deadline is fast approaching.

"There is a growing belief in league personnel circles that Utah could move swingman Rodney Hood before the February 8 trade deadline".

Hood, 25, entered Friday night's game against the New York Knicks averaging a career-high 16.7 points per contest on 40.9 percent shooting from the field and 38.6 percent shooting from three.

Marc Stein of the New York Times reported on Friday that there is a "growing belief" around the league that the Jazz could trade Hood before the February 8 deadline.




With the emergence of Donovan Mitchell, the Jazz have found their future.

Hood is eligible for a contract extension, something that he and the Jazz failed to agree on before the season started so he is quite a risk. Simply put, there's no room for another starting shooting guard in Utah.

After a promising 2016-17 season, Utah has taken a step backwards in 2017-18 with Gordon Hayward having departed in free agency and center Rudy Gobert having missed large chunks of the year due to injury. The Jazz are fighting for a playoff spot in the tough Western Conference and moving an integral piece to their lineup can go either way for them. Of course, you remember him better for this.
