The Kings have reportedly shown interest in restricted free agent Rodney Hood, according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.
“League sources said the Kings have shown interest in Hood, but the talks have not progressed to the point where an offer sheet is imminent.” – Sacramento Bee
Hood would fill the void at small forward for Sacramento and might not be overly expensive to obtain. Obviously, being a restricted free agent means the Cavaliers can match any offer sheet Hood signs, if they so desire.
The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 14.7 points per game last season on 42.9 percent shooting from the field and 38.1 percent from three. Hood was traded to the Cavs at the trade deadline but didn’t quite have the impact they had hoped for.
The Kings’ options at small forward are dwindling, so we’ll see what they decide to do to fill that hole.
