Jeff Teague said he's expecting the Wolves to score 107-110 points per game.
That would put them in the top 10 based on last year, which is a slight increase from their 13th-ranked 105.6 per game. If you want to go off the three preseason games, Teague's usage rate has actually held up very nicely at 19.3, which isn't too far off his 22.1 from last year. He won't be dishing too much, but his high floor in standard leagues makes him a mid-round pick. Oct 13 - 4:17 PM

Jeff Teague scored 11 points with three rebounds, nine assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday.

He said the Wolves would likely still need to work on their chemistry issues beyond the preseason, but you wouldn't know that based on how Teague played today. The Wolves likely added him for his elite catch-and-shoot play in the past three years, but he handled the ball more than expected to start his Wolves career -- he looked great on the break, too. His upside isn't going to be as high because he's the fourth scoring option, but he should have a high floor with some strong efficiency.

Jeff Teague has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $57 million deal with the Timberwolves.

The Wolves sent Ricky Rubio to the Jazz earlier in the day, in exchange for a protected pick, so they were clearly targeting a starting-caliber PG to pair with Jimmy Butler, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. Teague's usage rate could dip in such a loaded offense, but he's still likely to return mid-round fantasy value.

Marc Stein of reports an "unconfirmed estimate making the rounds" on Jeff Teague's possible deal with the Wolves could be around $55 million over three years.

To be clear, this isn't official yet. That's more money per year than the Ricky Rubio deal, but Rubio would likely command more money next year. Teague has shown he's very capable as an off-ball guy, but his defense will be something to watch with coach Tom Thibodeau.

The Knicks have abandoned their hopes of meeting with Jeff Teague because they're convinced Teague has committed to the Wolves, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

This is the third different report from very, very credible reporters saying Teague is likely going to the Wolves. Sure, there is still a chance the Wolves can go after someone like Kyle Lowry or George Hill, but Teague's catch-and-shoot game should mesh well with the other play-making Wolves.
Jun 30 - 8:09 PM

Jeff Teague is a "heavy, heavy favorite" with the Wolves, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

The Wolves are obviously going after someone and Teague does make sense. Of course, they'd love to sign Kyle Lowry, but Teague fits in nicely as a great shooter. Over the last three seasons combined, Teague had a 63.2 effective field goal percentage on catch-and-shoot attempts, so that would likely help a team with a lack of perimeter shooting right now.
Jun 30 - 5:32 PM

The Knicks will reportedly go after unrestricted free agent Jeff Teague this offseason.

With Phil Jackson no longer with the Knicks, the triangle will no longer be an overarching philosophy in the offensive scheme in New York, which is a positive for Teague who wasn't much a fan of exclusively running the triangle. The Knicks have been linked to Teague more than a few times over the past couple years, and there's reportedly mutual interest here, so this is certainly a free agent acquisition that could come to fruition under GM Steve Mills.

Jeff Teague said he would like to re-sign with the Pacers this summer.

The 28-year-old PG will be an unrestricted free agent and should be able to command a nice raise. "I love Indiana," Teague said. "You all know me, born and raised, tattoos on my arm. I’ve wanted to play for the Pacers my whole life. It’s a great opportunity for me and I love to be here." Sticking around in Indiana would be great for his fantasy value, as he was a top-45 standard league asset with averages of 15.3 points, 7.8 assists, 1.1 triples, 1.2 steals and 2.6 turnovers per game on 44.2 percent shooting this season.
Apr 24 - 10:40 AM

Jeff Teague double-doubled during the Pacers' Game 4 loss to the Cavs, recording 15 points, 10 assists, four rebounds, one 3-pointer, two steals, three blocks and three turnovers in 39 minutes.

Teague put himself in a position to take home a pretty nice payday this offseason as an unrestricted free agent after compiling averages of 15.3 points, 7.8 assists, 1.1 triples, 1.2 steals and just 2.6 turnovers per contest on 44.2 percent shooting during his first season in Indiana. It’ll be interesting to see where he winds up, but if he opts to re-sign with the Pacers, he’ll make for a safe mid-round pick in next year’s drafts.
Apr 23 - 3:43 PM

Jeff Teague played 33 minutes with 15 points, three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four 3-pointers against the Cavs in Game 3 on Thursday.

Coach Nate McMillan may have waited too long to put Teague back into the game and the Pacers went without a PG at times in the fourth. Teague had a costly turnover late in the game, but he wasn't at the top of the blame-game list for this terrible home loss. He'll probably get minutes in the mid 30s again, especially since his wrist injury looked like a non-issue.
Apr 20 - 10:07 PM

Jeff Teague (wrist) is not on the injury report for Game 3 on Thursday.

Coach Nate McMillan said Teague will be "ready to go" n Wednesday, so it's good to hear he's ready to roll before warmups. Teague's shooting wrist could impede his jumper, but he was terrific in Game 2 with an 8-of-12 shooting line. Expect Teague to be the second or third option in a favorable matchup against Kyrie Irving.
Apr 20 - 3:53 PM

Pacers' head coach Nate McMillan said that Jeff Teague (right wrist) will be "ready to go" for Thursday's Game 3 against the Cavs.

Teague's right wrist was clearly bothering him during Monday's Game 2 loss, but he played through it, and it looks like that trend will continue on Thursday night. Check back for official confirmation following Thursday morning's shootaround.
Apr 19 - 1:46 PM

Jeff Teague tweaked his right wrist in Monday's Game 2 loss to Cleveland, but still managed to score 23 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and two triples in 35 minutes.

He took a hard fall and was grimacing for multiple possessions, but he was able to stay in the game and it didn't look like an issue in the fourth quarter. However, he's going to undergo X-rays on his wrist and we could get another update tonight or early Tuesday morning. He finished 8-of-12 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line and bounced back nicely after his poor shooting performance in Game 1, but he was torched by Kyrie Irving on defense tonight. He will have a few days to rest up his wrist before Game 3 on Thursday.
Apr 17 - 10:05 PM

Jeff Teague made 3-of-10 from the field for 15 points with two rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

It was obvious the Cavs were going right at Teague as a defender. They were running 3-1 pick-and-roll plays with Kyrie Irving as a screener to get Teague on LeBron James, so we'll let you imagine the rest. Teague is still too good to take off the court, so the Pacers should just focus on how to avoid making so many switches. He also fared well against the Cavs on the season series, averaging 18.5 points, 11.0 assists and 2.8 treys in his four regular-season games. He should be better in Game 2.
Apr 15 - 5:51 PM

Coach Nate McMillan said that Jeff Teague (ankle) is "good to go" for Game 1 on Saturday vs. the Cavs.

Teague rolled his ankle in the fourth quarter of the Pacers' season finale on Wednesday and was forced to the locker room. Fortunately, it appears the injury was minor. Teague averaged 15.3 points, 7.8 assists and 1.2 steals this season for Indiana. He will have his hands full on Saturday trying to contain Kyrie Irving. Daily Slant: Cleveland allowed the fourth-most assists per game (25.4) after the break. Teague assists on 36.4% of his teammate’s field goals when he’s on the floor, which was the ninth-best rate in the NBA this season. There is obvious upside here and Teague has already taken advantage of the Cavs – in each of the last three games they’ve faced each other, he accounted for 11 or more assists. In terms of overall fantasy production, he’s scored at least 38 DK points in all four meetings this year, topped 40 three times, and peaked at 54.25.
