If the Cleveland Cavaliers want to bring Rodney Hood back, they will have some competition, reportedly.
Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports reports the restricted free-agent swingman received calls from several teams after the free-agency period tipped off Sunday morning.
Sources: Rodney Hood received calls from upward of six teams tonight. Interest is high for the 25-year-old swingman and the #Cavs have competition in resigning the RFA.

Hood, 25, was acquired by the Cavaliers from the Utah Jazz at the February trade deadline. He averaged 10.8 points in 21 regular-season games in Cleveland. During that time, Hood shot 44 percent from the field, and 35 percent on 3-pointers.
But then came the playoffs and Hood’s productivity and playing time went largely south.
He registered by five DNP’s after falling out of coach Tyronn Lue’s rotation, before coming around to score 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting in Game 3 of the Finals, a loss to the Golden State Warriors.
Hood averaged 16.8 points during the first 39 games of his season with the Jazz.
