Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline was one of the more wild ones in recent memory, with a flurry of notable moves being made right before the clock hit 3 p.m. In breaking down the deal, however, he himself broke down in tears, as neither Crowder nor Rose are the kind of pieces that will boost the Jazz's chances of winning a title.

The Cavs seemingly had a deal in place to acquire George Hill from the Kings two weeks ago, but talks stalled due to concerns that LeBron James will leave the team in free agency this summer and Hill's reluctance agree to a potential buyout. Playing well below championship level in what could be LeBron James' final season with with his hometown team, the Cavs have chose to go for broke.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired Rodney Hood and George Hill in a three-way deal with the Utah Jazz and Sacramento Kings, league sources told ESPN on Thursday.

So what does all this mean? He's getting traded back "home" to Miami, where he played for most of his career. As for Crowder, his short time in Cleveland was less than stellar.

The 6-foot-8 Hood will bring scoring and defensive versatility, while Hill leads the National Basketball Association in 3-point shooting (.453) and is only a year removed from resurrecting his career in Utah, though he's averaging just 10 points a game thus far. Clarkson and Nance are both 25. They were also able to make sure they get something in return for Hood's expiring $2.3 million contract.

Cleveland sits in third place in the East at 31-22.
