Report: Rodney Hood to join Bucks on 1-year deal

Milwaukee’s newest reinforcements gradually arrive

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Toronto Raptors Mary Holt-USA TODAY Sports

We’re now up to three signings in the past 24 hours for the Milwaukee Bucks: Bobby Portis, Semi Ojeleye, and now Rodney Hood:

Hood, who turns 29 years old in October, is fresh off a season in which he split his duties between the Portland Trail Blazers and Toronto Raptors. A career 36.7% three-point shooter, he’s bounced around a bit in his NBA career, though he’ll be asked to likely fill a relatively limited role with the Bucks.

He’ll also be joining with a little bit of playoff experience to his name having appeared in a total of 44 post-season games during his time with the Utah Jazz, Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Blazers (though his go-around was in the 2019 playoffs).

Finally, it should be noted that he tore his left Achilles tendon in December of 2019. I can’t credibly claim to know how much that has impacted his game since returning, but if he needs any further help getting his body right, he’s coming to the right training staff.

We’ll update this post with more details once we have them!
