Guard Rodney Hood expects to be with the Portland Trail Blazers next season but hasn’t indicated whether or not he will pick up the player option on his current contract. Hood revealed this, also talking about his rehab workouts, in a Zoom conference with Portland media today.

Hood tore his left Achilles tendon on December 6th, 2019 in a game against the Los Angeles Lakers. He has not played since and is not expected to return before next season. He has a $6 million player option with the Blazers for 2020-21. He can choose to remain with the club for that amount or attempt to negotiate a new deal as an unrestricted free agent this summer.
