Update custom field based when Assignee is updated

I have a customer field called Scrum Team. It is a drop down with 5 teams. When some assigns an issue to someone, I want the Scrum Team field to be automatically changed to the appropriate Scrum Team. Could I store what Scrum Team a user is in someplace and then call it to update the Scrum Team field when they are assigned? We are using Cloud.

One way is to implement a webhook which will be called on issue update and then try to set the appropriate team through the JIRA REST API
