The Cavaliers have made Rodney Hood’s return official.
In a press release sent out Monday, the team confirmed that Hood has re-signed with the team, but did not disclose the terms of the deal.
On Sunday, cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon first reported that Hood had accepted his qualifying offer worth $3.4 million. Hood will now be an unrestricted free agent next summer.
The next question for the Cavs is what role Hood will play next season. With LeBron James gone, there’s at least one spot in the starting lineup up for grabs. If Tyronn Lue moves J.R. Smith to the bench, that creates another. Hood, along with Cedi Osman, would be a leading candidate for both spots.
With Hood signed, the Cavs’ roster now stands at 14 guaranteed contracts with the 15th spot possibly being filled in training camp. Cleveland opens up camp on Monday, Sept. 24.
