Candidates to Fill the Trail Blazers’ Small Forward Position

With the offseason looming, the Blazers need to clean up the small forward position. Trevor Ariza and Rodney Hood are the main options at the three, but they need more depth. Ariza can still defend at a high level and shoot from deep at a high clip (40% while with the Blazers last season), but he’s playing on a non-guaranteed, one-year contract. Hood is still coming off of a torn Achilles injury and nobody knows if he’ll be the same. He’s also on a single-year deal.

Here are some options the Blazers might pursue to shore up the position now and in the long term.
