Report: Jeff Teague agrees to 3-year, $57 million deal with Timberwolves

Free agent point guard Jeff Teague has signed a three-year, $57-million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Teague became the second member of the Indiana Pacers to leave town after prized swingman Paul George was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The agreement comes only hours after the Timberwolves traded their starting point guard Ricky Rubio to the Utah Jazz in exchange for a top-14 protected first-round pick.

Teague was amongst four starting-caliber point guards that could fit Tom Thibodeau‘s system, in need of a shooter that can space the floor and perform at the defensive end.

The 29-year-old put up 15.3 points and 7.8 assists in 82 games in 2016-17 in his first and only season with his hometown of Indiana after seven seasons with the Atlanta Hawks.

A 6-foot-2, 186-pound point guard, Teague has been an iron man of sorts, missing only 17 games in the last four seasons in the NBA.
