Rodney Hood's free agency has finally come to an end. According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, Hood will sign a one-year qualifying offer to remain with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Hood, who was a restricted free agent, will now be a member of 2019's loaded free agency class. Earlier in the week, Cleveland.com reported that the 25-year-old was seeking a three-year deal in the $27 million range.

Cleveland acquired Hood from Utah at last year's trade deadline. In 21 regular season games with the Cavs, Hood made 11 starts and averaged 10.8 points and 2.6 rebounds while shooting at a 35.2 percent clip from beyond the arc. In the postseason, Hood struggled to find his way - after starting in Game 1 of the first round, he did not see any time in five different games.

Sure Not Now

As Cleveland ushers in a new era, Hood will likely be looked upon to bear much of the load offensively. The 6-foot-8 lefty now has the opportunity to earn a big deal in a contract year.
