JB Bickerstaff

In addition to Cleveland acquiring Hood and Hill, it sends Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose to Utah as well as Iman Shumpert to the Kings.

The Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly continued to acquire more youth and shooting in the hours leading up to Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

They sent out Shumpert and a 2020 second-round pick via the Heat to the Kings, while Crowder and Rose go to the Jazz. Sacramento will also receive a second-round pick and cash considerations.

Hill will step into the starting point guard role for the Cavs, who just sent point guard Isaiah Thomas, along with big man Channing Frye, to the Los Angeles Lakers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. Given the size, athleticism, wingspan for his height, he eats into the minutes of players like Joe Johnson and Rodney Hood, the latter of whom was a huge part of trade talks. Neither player lived up to his advanced billing after joining the Cavs in last August's Kyrie Irving trade, which looks like a mammoth home run for the Celtics. As for Crowder, his short time in Cleveland was less than stellar. He is averaging 16.8 points per game while shooting 38.6 percent from three-point range, giving the Cavs another shooter.

The big additions in this deal include Hill who is one of the best 3-point shooters in the National Basketball Association (45.3 percent) this season.

Cleveland sits in third place in the East at 31-22.
