Rodney Hood is returning to the Portland Trail Blazers this coming season.
The Meridian native signed a two-year, $21 million deal to remain in Portland, where he has spent the previous two seasons, according to a tweet by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski Friday night. This past season, Hood averaged 11 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.
Hood had a $6 million player option in his previous contract he declined earlier this week. The new deal has not yet been officially announced by the Trail Blazers.
