Timberwolves Trade Jeff Teague

The Atlanta Hawks have acquired Jeff Teague in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

With the Hawks, Teague will provide a steady backup to star Trae Young.

The 31-year-old Teague, who makes $ 19 million, and the 27-year-old Crabbe, who makes $ 18.5 million, both play with expiring contracts. In 33 games with Minnesota this season, Graham averaged 5.2 points and 3.0 rebounds. He will wear jersey No. 00. "The 6'6" shooting guard from Virginia Commonwealth has averaged 4.3 points and 2.2 rebounds per contest for his career. In 34 appearances with the Wolves this season, Teague is averaging 13.2 points and 6.1 assists per game. He will wear jersey No. 2.

Mohammad Hafeez To Retire From International Cricket After T20 World Cup
Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Amir , Mohammad Irfan and Wahab Riaz were axed from the squad . Rauf is presently playing for the Melbourne Stars but has not been impressive in his last two outings.

Crabbe is a career 38.9% three-point shooter, so he should add some much-needed spacing to the Wolves' rotation even though Teague had been one of the better outside shooters on the team this season. Crabbe finished eighth in the league in corner three-point field goal percentage (min. 60 corner 3FGA) at 49.2 percent last season with Brooklyn and set the Nets single-season franchise record for threes made in a season when he knocked down 201 threes (12th-most in the NBA) in 2017-18.

Crabbe signed a four-year, $74.8 million deal in 2016 and will be a free agent this offseason.

Graham, 26, was acquired by the Timberwolves in a trade with Golden State on July 8, 2019.
