Hawks Say Jeff Teague Trade Is Not Imminent

by January 28, 2016

Atlanta Hawks head coach and President of Basketball Ops Mike Budenholzer responded to speculation about starting point guard Jeff Teague, by claiming that nothing is “imminent” on the trade front.

Next month’s NBA trade deadline is fast-approaching, but Budenholzer says the Hawks like and believe in their current roster.

Atlanta has a 27-20 record.

Per the AJC:

“I would say we continue to like our team and believe in the team,” Budenholzer said. “I don’t think we’ve been as consistent as we’d like. I think, collectively we haven’t and probably individually we haven’t. But I wouldn’t say anything is in line or imminent or anything like that at all.”


The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 18.


For the Hawks, Al Horford and Kent Bazemore will become unrestricted free agents at the end of the season. Teague is under contract through next season at cap-friendly $8 million per season. (Dennis) Schroder is under contract with a qualifying offer through 2017-18.
