• The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski ‏is reporting that Jeff Teague is headed to the Pacers as part of a three-team deal with Atlanta and Utah.

    Details are still pouring in, but it appears as if Atlanta will receive Utah’s No. 12, Teague will join the Pacers and George Hill will head to Utah in the deal.

    The Pacers have to be hoping to take some pressure off of Paul George by getting a more capable ball handler to man their point guard position.  From a fantasy angle, Teague’s usage will likely come down playing next to Paul George, making him much less valuable.  Meanwhile, despite the risks of trading for an expiring contract, Utah finally gets a starting caliber point guard to go with their current core, and Hill should be an excellent defensive fit for coach Quin Snyder. 

    Atlanta, conversely, could be heading towards a full rebuild.  Look for Dennis Schroder to see a huge increase in role and usage rate next season.
