Hawks Acquire PG Jeff Teague as Backup for Trae Young

Fri 17th January 2020

The Atlanta Hawks have acquired point guard Jeff Teague in a three-player trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Minnesota also is sending guard Treveon Graham to Atlanta in a deal that returns guard Allen Crabbe to the Timberwolves.

Minnesota creates an open roster spot that could be useful in bigger trades before the Feb. 6 deadline.

The Hawks have been scouring the marketplace for a backup point guard to ease the burden of Trae Young. The Hawks have an offensive rating of 108.2 with Young on the floor, and 90.7 off it.

Teague and Crabbe are on expiring contracts. Teague, 31, played the first seven years of his career with Atlanta.

Graham, 26, has averaged five points and three rebounds.
