2016-17

Hood was able to beat out Alec Burks for the starting shooting guard job in training camp and didnít look back, as he took an encouraging step forward in his sophomore season. The shooting guard from Duke started all 79 games in which he played, averaging 14.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.0 three-pointers and 0.9 steals in 32.0 minutes per contest, numbers that were all significant improvements from his rookie season. While Hoodís strong three-point shooting was the major reason he was able to hang on to a starting role, his 6-foot-8 frame and long wingspan has made him an asset on the defensive end, too. The Jazz will look to Hood to develop some more consistency as a scorer after his point totals were often unpredictable from game to game last season, but perhaps a healthier roster will open up some cleaner looks for him in 2016-17. Rudy Gobert, Derrick Favors and Burks are all back in the fold after missing large chunks of last season with injury, giving the Jazz more weapons to take the pressure off Hood and fellow wing Gordon Hayward.

2015-16

Hood is coming off a disappointing rookie season which was marred by a recurring foot injury that limited him to just 50 games. Although, he regained his fitness near the end of the season and was able to start in 21 total games, even winning Rookie of Month honors for April as he resurrected his season. Last year, his main competition for minutes was fellow rookie Joe Ingles, but now the return of Alec Burks (shoulder) complicates things for coach Quin Snyder since each of the aforementioned players could conceivably be named a starter given their ability to play at small forward in addition to shooting guard. Regardless of how it turns out, Hood is a budding sharpshooter from beyond the arc and is expected to see a solid spot in the rotation, and if he continues to show progress, the former Blue Devil could surely end up finding value in standard-sized leagues as he'll look to improve on his averages of 8.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 1.2 three-pointers from last season.

2014-15

Rodney Hood was drafted by the Jazz with the 23rd-overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. After averaging 16.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 2.0 three-pointers in 33 minutes per game as a sophomore for Duke last season, Hood showed his ability to contribute to an NBA rotation right away with an impressive Las Vegas Summer League. His summer league was highlighted by a 29-point performance where he was able to connect on seven three-pointers. Hood's stellar performance this summer seemed to solidify his spot as the second option at small forward behind Gordon Hayward. Hayward was a workhorse for the Jazz last season, but Hood still stands a chance to be given significant time on the court with his ability to catch fire from long range. When Hood first joined the Jazz in the offseason, he showed hesitancy shooting the ball to the point where new head coach Quin Snyder directly challenged him to be more aggressive. Rookie hiccups are to be expected, but Hood will be best if he's an aggressive scorer, since it's what Utah lacked in last season.
