The Cleveland Cavaliers have parted with several players over the past months, notably Kyle Korver and George Hill. Looking ahead, two more players could be dealt soon – Rodney Hood and Alec Burks.

The Cavs currently sport a 7-21 win-loss record in the Eastern Conference and seemingly look like a team going through the motions of finishing this season. Hood and Burks have been singled out as likely candidates, seeing as both have expiring contracts and are unlikely to be part of Cleveland’s future plans. Should this be the case, these are two players who could be dealt by the Feb. 7, 2019, NBA trade deadline, ESPN reported.

Burks is not really a bad addition since being acquired in that Korver trade. However, he may not necessarily be the player the Cavs are looking for. With an expiring contract that other teams may find interesting, he could be dealt in exchange for a veteran player and some future draft picks in the process, according to King James Gospel.

Burks could be a good backup for any team in need of a player who can spell their starting guards. Since arriving in Cleveland, the 27-year-old has seen increased minutes, averaging 12.7 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists. Those are pretty decent numbers for someone who would come off the bench, Bleacher Report noted.

The same case somehow holds true for Rodney Hood. His one-year qualifying offer is set to expire this season, meaning he is likely to head out into free agency anyway.

Hood has found himself trying to rediscover his old self when he was still in Utah. His numbers dipped immensely after getting traded, something that hardly came as a surprise since he had to play behind the likes of LeBron James in 2018. And while he has somehow picked up from that, it remains that the 26-year-old is still in transition and without the team where he can perform comfortably with.

If traded, he too could be a reliable sixth man off the bench. However, the team he ends up with should be a club where he can actually fit in and hit his stride. His confidence level right now is suspect since leaving Utah, but a change of scenery by early 2019 could alter all that.

Both or either could be dealt before the current regular season ends. If not, expect them to likely leave anyway unless the Cavs deem them fit for their future plans.
