Cavs' Rodney Hood Angered His Teammates & Possibly Lost The Locker Room After His Game 4 Stunt

Thus far this postseason Hood has averaged just 4.6 points per game and is shooting only 13% from beyond the arc, and throughout the Cavaliers series against the Raptors had continued to lose minutes in the rotation in favor of rookie Cedi Osman. They've already have more than enough in the a year ago, which plays benefits Hood's benefit this time.

The Athletic first reported Hood's refusal to play in the game, and in its piece suggested that numerous Cavs were upset and that a suspension or fine was possible. For the playoffs, Hood has posted a plus-minus of -67.

Trump previously said a date and location for his summit with Kim have been selected, but he has not revealed those details. China has also been eager to assert its importance in the process of lowering tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

On the broadcast, J.R. Smith could be seen talking to Hood outside the huddle, and Smith is shown talking to LeBron James on the bench soon afterwards. According to a new report, Hood was instructed to check into the game in the fourth quarter but he chose not to.

"An opposing executive texted Lloyd: "(Hood) is not built for this", and now we're seeing why. Hood, who is averaging 4.6 points on 39.6 percent shooting in the postseason probably won't play big minutes, but you can probably expect him to enter the game when called upon.

Hood missed games multiple times down the stretch with a lower back strain and a sore left Achilles, but Lloyd reported that "according to multiple people who witnessed the exchange, this had nothing to do with stiffness and everything to do with a young player pouting". General manager Koby Altman intends to meet with Hood to hear his side of the issue, but the damage may have already been done in the Cavaliers' locker room.
