The Portland Trail Blazers have resigned shooting guard Rodney Hood. Hood opted out of the remaining year of his contract worth $6 million only to sign a 2 year $21 million contract with Portland. The second year of the contract is non-guaranteed, likely due to Hood returning from an achilles injury.
Hood missed most of last season with Portland, playing in only 21 games (starting all of those) before he tore his achilles against the Los Angeles Lakers. He averaged 11 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1. 5 assists.
He will likely be Portland’s starting small forward next season.
