Hawks restricted free-agent Jeff Teague has reportedly signed a four-year offer sheet with the Milwaukee Bucks and seems to be ready to “move on” from Atlanta.
Milwaukee, who is now coached by former Hawks skipper Larry Drew, has been after Teague for a few weeks and may have finally landed him as the point guard has signed a four-year, $32 million offer sheet with the Bucks, according to Yahoo! Sports.
To add fuel to the fire, Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution tweeted that the frustrated point guard let GM Danny Ferry know exactly how he’s feeling, and apparently he’s “ready to move on” from Atlanta.
Then Teague dropped these bombs…
When Teague said “they embraced me”, he was referring to the Bucks.
Certainly looks like this relationship between Teague and the Hawks will end sooner rather than later.
The Hawks have until Saturday night to match the offer sheet from the Bucks. If they don’t, Teague will head to Milwaukee and reunite with his old coach Larry Drew.
Teague averaged 14.8 points and 7.2 assists per game for Atlanta last season.
