In a crazy 3 team trade, it looks like Jeff Teague is heading to the Pacers and George Hill is heading to the Jazz.
PACERS get Jeff Teague
JAZZ get George Hill
ATLANTA gets 12th pick in draft from the UTAH JAZZ
If you ask me, the Jazz and Pacers made out good in this trade. It's got to be so hard for a team like the Utah Jazz to get a player to want to come to their team. Is there anything good about Utah at all? Do they just tell players that its mormon, and they can now legally have multiple wives? I'm sure George Hill is salty as fuck right now...
I get that the Hawks were looking to clear up some cap space in the hopes of resigning big man Al Horford and swingman Kent Bazemore, but if anyone watched the Celtics vs Hawks series TEAGUE was nasty. Not to mention, Teague is young and has potential to only get better. Furthermore, this years draft only has about 10 real solid players. There are always a few players that go later in the draft that end up surprising everyone and develop into great NBA talent, however I do not have faith that the Hawks will choose that guy. So to me this trade would have only made sense if the Hawks got a player along with the 12th pick.
Stay posted for more NBA news as I'm sure there will be a few more trades leading up to the draft.
