Sacramento will receive Joe Johnson from Utah and Iman Shumpert and a future pick from Cleveland, while the Jazz will get forward Jae Crowder and guard Derrick Rose from the Cavaliers.

Shortly after the trade was reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Shams Charania of the Vertical reported that the Jazz plan on waving Rose.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are not standing pat during the National Basketball Association trade deadline.

(Olympics) Winter Games set to move ICT forward: organizers
When many athletes and officials woke up Wednesday, the temperature at Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium was minus 3 Fahrenheit. Competition for the 2018 Games started on Thursday, February 8 - with competitions in curling and ski jumping.

After kicking off the National Basketball Association trade deadline by shipping Isaiah Thomas to the Lakers, the Cleveland Cavaliers made two more trades, flipping what looks to be about half their roster. Now, he'll give the Cavaliers a potentially elite scoring option and versatile size in the backcourt to pair with point guard George Hill, who was traded to Cleveland from Sacramento. The Kings acquire Joe Johnson from the Jazz. It has now added three solid perimeter options in Jordan Clarkson, Rodney Hood and George Hill in two separate deals at the trade deadline.

A capable, lanky lefty with good three-point acumen (career-high 38.9 percent for the season), Hood can prove to be a big asset for contenders looking for an extra shooter to catapult them to where they want to be.

Utah lineups with Hill and Hood in them last season outscored opponents by 8.5 points per 100 possessions, posting a 100.2 defensive rating over 684 minutes last season.
