Report: Pacers acquire Teague in three-way deal with Hawks, Jazz
The Indiana Pacers have acquired point guard Jeff Teague from the Atlanta Hawks in a three-way deal also involving the Utah Jazz, The Vertical reports.
The Pacers will reportedly send point guard George Hill to the Jazz as part of the trade. The Jazz will send the No. 12 pick to the Hawks.
Teague, 28 averaged 15.7 points and 5.9 assists per game last season. The deal likely clears the way for Dennis Schröder to assume a starting role in Atlanta. The Vertical reports that Indiana plans to sign Teague to an extension.
Hill, 30, posted 12.1 points per game and shot 40.8% from three in 2015-16. The Jazz deployed the tandem of Trey Burke and Shelvin Mack at point guard down the stretch last season and return 2014 lottery pick Dante Exum to the fold from injury this season.
The Hawks also hold picks No. 21, 44 and 54 in Thursday’s draft.
