Hood on verge of returning to Cavaliers

Rodney Hood is on the verge of returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers after agreeing to accept the team's one-year, $3.4 million qualifying offer, reported on Sunday.

Hood, a restricted free agent, reportedly bypassed a multiyear deal worth about $7 million annually.

Hood was hoping for a bigger payday, but the market was lukewarm after his poor playoff showing for the Cavaliers.

The 6-foot-8 forward was in and out of the rotation while averaging just 5.4 points in 17 playoff games. He shot just 16.7 percent (4 of 24) from 3-point range.

Perhaps worse, Hood refused to enter Game 4 of the second-round series against the Toronto Raptors when asked to sub in during the fourth quarter. He later apologized to his teammates and the organization.

Hood was acquired by the Cavaliers in February and averaged 10.8 points in 21 games. He averaged 16.8 points in 39 games with the Utah Jazz prior to the trade.

Hood, who turns 26 in October, has a 13.0 career scoring average over four seasons, and Cleveland hopes he's a player that might emerge with LeBron James gone and off to the Los Angeles Lakers.
