The Hawks have been the worst team in the Eastern Conference this season. Atlanta is 9-32, good for the second-worst record in the entire NBA.
Atlanta is a very young team, though, and lacks solid depth behind its top young players in Trae Young and John Collins.
Teague, 31, is averaging 13.2 points and 6.1 assists per game. He’s in the final season of a three year, $57 million contract.
