9. Rodney Hood, 2019-20 season
Believe it or not, Lillard played with some rather poor wings in Portland (that’s sarcasm). As Ariza was performing at a less-than-acceptable rate in ’19-20, Hood was doing even worse.
The former Duke Blue Devil also started 21 times that season. He also averaged 11.0 points. But other than shooting well from three, Hood didn’t bring anything of value to Portland.
He was a little above average offensively (small sample size) but below average defensively. He was worth 1.1 win shares, meaning his play contributed 1.1 wins to a Blazers team that finished eighth in the Western Conference and lost in five games to the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the bubble playoffs.
For reference, Hassan Whiteside was second on the team in win shares at 8.5.
Another day, another failed wing experiment in Portland.
