Lowly NBA Hawks land guards Teague, Graham from T-Wolves

Lowly NBA Hawks land guards Teague, Graham from T-Wolves

At 15-25, the Timberwolves are 3.5 games behind Memphis for the last Western Conference playoff spot.

The Hawks drafted Jeff Teague 19th overall out of Wake Forest in the 2009 NBA Draft, and he spent his first seven seasons with the team.

Crabbe is a better stylistic fit for the fast-paced, 3-point-favoring offense the Wolves have transitioned to under Rosas and first-year coach Ryan Saunders. Through 28 appearances in Atlanta this season, Crabbe had put up just 5.1 points on a 46.9% eFG, while playing under 19 minutes per game. The way he plays this system may not be as complementary to him as we need our lead guard to be a guy who drives the pace and more a creator as a scorer.

Both Teague and Crabbe are on expiring contracts this season, as is Treveon Graham who is also Atlanta-bound alongside Teague. Graham is only signed through this season, too.

The data came from the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study, which reports on 282 primary causes of death across the globe. Niranjan "Tex" Kissoon, vice-president of the Global Sepsis Alliance.

Teague averaged 13.4 points and 7.1 assists in 146 games with the Timberwolves over 2 1/2 seasons, a respected leader in the locker room, whose time with the team was impacted by knee and ankle injuries.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news on Thursday morning adding one sentence of analysis on the deal saying, "Hawks get a backup for Trae Young".

By unloading Teague, the Wolves free up additional opportunities for Jeff Culver and Shabazz Napier at the point. Young, in his second National Basketball Association season, has averaged 35.2 minutes per game, 13th most in the National Basketball Association.
