The Atlanta Hawks have acquired a backup point guard for Trae Young. The team acquired point guard Jeff Teague in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
In the deal, the Hawks also acquired swingman Treveon Graham. In exchange for Teague and Graham, the Minnesota Timberwolves acquired swingman Allen Crabbe.
This is the third trade involving Crabbe since July 2017. In addition, this is the second deal involving him since July.
He was traded from the Brooklyn Nets to the Atlanta Hawks on July 6, 2019. He went to Atlanta with Nickeil Alexander-Walker and a 2020 first-round draft pick.
In return, the Nets received Taurean Prince and a 2021 second-round draft pick.
It comes full circle as Teague was traded in 2016 for a draft pick that became Prince. Then, he was traded for Crabbe, who just months earlier, was traded for Prince.
Teague is in the final year of his agreement at $19 million this season. Crabbe is also in the final year of his agreement at $18.5 million.
