The Utah Jazz's involvement in a three-way trade was met with mixed emotions and reactions by fans of the organization who've grown fond of shooting guard Rodney Hood and forward Joe Johnson.
The majority of posts in regard to those two fall along the lines of: "Sorry to see you go, Joe" and "It's been good, Hood."
The Jazz traded Hood to Cleveland and Johnson to Sacramento and received small forward Jae Crowder and point guard Derrick Rose as part of a three-way deal, according to multiple reports. Former Utah point guard George Hill is headed to the Cavs as part of the swap, which also includes various other minor details.
The crazy period leading up to the NBA's 1 p.m. MST trade deadline also saw the Cavs send Dwyane Wade back to Miami and Isaiah Thomas to the Los Angeles Lakers, according to multiple reports.
Twitter didn't disappoint with a deluge of responses on the wild day:
