The Cleveland Cavaliers continued to acquire more youth and shooting in the hours leading up to Thursday's NBA trade deadline. Cleveland has acquired Utah guard Rodney Hood and Sacramento guard George Hill in a three-team deal, the team announced.

The Cavaliers will reportedly send Iman Shumpert to the Kings while dealing Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose to the Jazz. Joe Johnson also goes from Utah to Sacramento in the trade.

Per Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania, the Jazz are expected to release Derrick Rose, who is in the final year of his contract. According to Marc Stein of The New York Times, once he clears waivers the Minnesota Timberwolves are expected to make a run at signing Rose.

Cleveland had also dealt Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and a 2018 first-round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.
