Most NBA insiders say Hood cost himself lots of money with his postseason struggles, limiting the contract offers he might get this summer (he averaged 5.4 points, shot .167 from 3, and his plus-minus of minus-93 was the worst of the NBA playoffs). The Cavs could still sign him to a long-term contract in July without first making a qualifying offer to him. Team sources say they like Hood and his future on the team, but no one’s tipped a hand as to what’s next for him.
Rodney Hood: You don’t be a free agent every single year. It only comes around two or three times, luckily, in your career. Whatever happens, whether I’m here or whether I’m somewhere else, I want to be able to say I won a championship and say I played in the Finals and played well in the Finals, and I can be able to take this experience with me somewhere else or if I stay here in Cleveland I’ll be able to take this and really propel my career to something bigger and better.

Rodney Hood: Obviously their number one priority is LeBron and seeing what he’s gonna do. I think they do want me in their future. They’ve told me that. But obviously the money has to be worked out and so I really don’t know exactly what has to happen. But for me it’s just about doing what’s best for me and my family. I think Cleveland is going to do what’s best for that organization, and LeBron is going to do what’s best for him, and everybody can respect that.

Hood, who began this postseason in Cleveland’s starting lineup, has been mostly a non-factor during the Cavs’ spring run which included him refusing to check into the final minutes of a blowout win over Toronto in the second round. That’s not an option now. “We’re going to give Rodney a chance,” Lue said following practice at Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday. “He’ll get a shot and see how he does. He’s been working, staying ready. So we’ll see.”
Hood was the Cavs’ starting shooting guard in their playoff opener – a 98-80 loss to the Indiana Pacers – and has seen his role diminish dramatically since then, going from a bench player to receiving six DNP-CDs in Cleveland’s last 10 games. “I don’t know when it’s going to come or what stage of the game, but just being ready,” Hood said Tuesday. “I’ve been preparing, I’ve been working hard, so if I get the opportunity, just go out there and play. Just have fun.”
