What the point guard brings to the Cleveland Cavaliers — George Hill

Look for Hill to finish the season with a flourish with the Cavaliers. Hood also is shooting 38.9 percent.

This was supposed to be the season where Derrick Rose showed that he could stay healthy and return to his previous form, but it never manifested. It was just a matter of where they were going and who Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey would bring back in their place.

Utah placed Rodney Hood, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, on the trade block last month.

Wade is a slightly different story. The deal, however, keeps the Kings in line with their financial plans moving forward.

Grade for the Cavaliers: B+.

For a guy just coming out from under, his analysis is spot on. The Kings didn't do anything wrong, but they also didn't do anything right. Now, the youth movement is in full force, with the postseason out of reach. Shumpert is owed $11 million for 18-19 on a player option. It's unclear if Hill has changed his mind about that. Wojnarowksi then tweeted that Joe Johnson would be leaving too, but to Sacramento as part of a three-team deal. Sacramento does the same, dumping Hill's large contract and freeing up playing time for their younger players. The Kings have done that here.

Utah's offense isn't likely to skip a beat amid Hood's departure. The rookie has played so well, which had caused a logjam at the wing for Utah.

In case you need to catch your breath, the Cavaliers are making serious moves and they still have the Brooklyn Nets first round pick.

Walker has played a critical role for the Hornets on the road over the past two weeks. Namely, forward Jae Crowder. But constant injuries have kept him from having a real impact for the Jazz. Losing him in the trade isn't a major loss for Utah, who will replace his minutes with a combination of Crowder, Jonas Jerebko and Royce O'Neale.

According to several reports, the Jazz will waive the 29-year old former MVP, allowing him to pursue another opportunity with a playoff team.

Grade for the Jazz: B+.
