Report: Jeff Teague traded to Indiana as part of three-team deal

Point guard Jeff Teague is off to the Indiana Pacers as part of a three-team deal that also involves George Hill and the No. 12 pick, according to a report.

Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical reported that Teague was going to the Pacers, with Hill going to the Utah Jazz. The Atlanta Hawks are reportedly acquiring Utah’s first round pick, No. 12 overall, as part of the deal.

Teague would be a free agent after 2016-17, so even if they can’t ink him to an extension, Indiana will have a year of him. The Jazz also get an established veteran guard in Hill, and the Hawks get a lottery pick and an opening to put Dennis Schroder into the starting lineup.

It will be interesting to see what this means for the Hawks going forward. They’d clearly been willing to move Teague, and with Al Horford about to become a free agency and already being looked at by several teams, their core may be about to come apart.
