Former Atlanta Hawks head coach Larry Drew has already brought two Hawks coaches with him to Milwaukee (Bob Bender and Nick Van Exel), and now he’s looking to bring Jeff Teague too.
Reports have surfaced via ESPN’s Marc Stein that the Milwaukee Bucks are pursuing restricted free-agent Jeff Teague.
As if their backcourt situation not sufficiently up in air … hearing Bucks, at behest of new coach Larry Drew, pursuing RFA Jeff Teague

This shouldn’t come as too much of a shock, considering the Bucks have two free-agent guards themselves and are looking at other options. Don’t forget that because the Hawks gave Teague a qualifying offer, they are free to match whatever deal the Bucks – or any other team – throws at JT.
We’ll have to keep an eye on Milwaukee as a place JT signs an offer sheet. Unless they give him a huuuuuuggggeeee deal, the Hawks are likely to match. It’s all just a big guessing game at this point, as Danny Ferry’s mind has a vision that we aren’t aware of.
Is Teague in that vision?
