NBA Trades: Jeff Teague to Pacers, George Hill to Jazz

Jeff Teague

The Atlanta Hawks are about to send guard Jeff Teague to the Indiana Pacers, as part of a three-way deal that includes the Utah Jazz, reports ESPN.

As part of the trade, point guard George Hill will go from Indiana to the Jazz, and Utah will send the No. 12 pick in Thursday’s draft to Atlanta.

ESPN points out that Teague revealed earlier this month in an Instagram post, which he later deleted, that he played the entire 2015-16 season with a torn patellar tendon in his knee and “could barely jump or stop.”

Last season, Teague appeared in 79 regular-season games in 2015-16, averaging 15.7 points and 5.9 assists while shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 40 percent from 3-point range.
