Rodney Hood
SG/SF, 6’8, 206lbs, 24 years old, 3 years of experience

Rather than breaking out, Hood posted pretty much exactly the same some of season as the two before it. He shot pretty much the same shots on pretty much the same efficiency. That said, he was off to a good start until being slowed by injuries, eventually losing his starting spot. 84.4% of Hood’s shot attempts are jump shots, with an overall shooting percentage on jumpers of 36.1%, and they mostly come from three-point range, on which he shoots 35.7%. There’s not much else on defence save for the occasional hook shot off a short drive, and the defence is unremarkable, his metrics being buoyed by having Gobert clean up behind him. With health next season, and a bit more consistency, maybe Hood can break out.

Player Plan: One year of rookie scale salary remaining. Also extension eligible. If he will take an MLE-sized extension, gladly do so, but it doesn’t seem likely that he would. In which case, set him the challenge to prove himself as an all-around player.
