Report: Kings could turn attention to Rodney Hood

The Sacramento Kings won’t be landing Zach LaVine from the Chicago Bulls, so they may look to the Central Division for their next target.

According to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, the Kings could turn their attention to Cleveland Cavaliers forward Rodney Hood, who is a restricted free agent. The Kings have reportedly shown interest in Hood, but have taken no steps to make him an offer sheet at this point.

Hood would fit Sacramento’s need of a wing who can score and create, having been rebuffed in efforts to sign Mario Hezonja as a free agent.

Hood was acquired by the Cavaliers at the trade deadline, from the Utah Jazz at the trade deadline, where his points per game dropped from 17 to 11 and he struggled to coexist with LeBron James. Now that James is gone, the 25-year-old could claim a larger role in the offense. However, the Cavaliers are already over the cap, and it remains to be seen if they’d be willing to give Hood a big payday if another team came in with a substantial offer sheet.
