FIVE Bold Cavs Predictions This Season

#2. Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson will both be traded

Hood and Clarkson both were acquired prior to the trade deadline last season and filled guard roles off the bench. Hood, the expected starter at SG this season, ended last season on a high note after an incredible effort in the NBA Finals and has been put on notice by many as a 20-point-per-game threat. Clarkson, meanwhile, is admired for his youth, speed and swagger, but struggled mightily in the playoffs and lost his shooting touch. With a team flourishing in guard talent, I think the Cavs will pursue a trade package involving Hood and Clarkson for another wing in order to keep a balance of young talent and competitiveness within the conference. I think if such deal were to occur, Hood would be the hot commodity with an expiring contract, while Clarkson is thrown in to clear cap room if he isn’t starting.
