The NBA trade deadline is rapidly approaching and at least two former Blue Devils will have new homes: Rodney Hood was traded to Portland on Saturday, leaving behind the wreckage in Cleveland. He’ll join former teammate Seth Curry and fellow former Blue Devil Gary Trent, Jr.

And after some confusion about his role, Jabari Parker was sent to the Washington Wizards. That team has some serious issues but it’s also an opportunity for Parker to find a bigger role. He’s also a high character guy and the Wizards can use some of that.
