The Minnesota Timberwolves made a splash in the trade market on Thursday, sending point guard Jeff Teague and wing player Treveon Graham to the Atlanta Hawks for guard Allen Crabbe.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to report the transaction. A source close to one of the players has confirmed the news to KSTP Sports.


Teague averaged 13.4 points and 7.1 assists per game for the Timberwolves in his three years on the team. After starting the first two seasons, he shifted to a bench role this season to open up more of an offensive game for Andrew Wiggins.

Graham came to Minnesota this summer as part of a deal with the Golden State Warriors after he was part of a deal that helped Kevin Durant get to the Brooklyn Nets and D'Angelo Russell to Golden State. In 33 games, Graham averaged 5.2 points per game on 35% shooting from the field, including 24% from three-point land.

Crabbe, 27, is in his seventh season in the league, playing four seasons with the Portland Trailblazers and two with Brooklyn. In Atlanta this season, Crabbe is averaging 5.1 points per game and 36% from the field in 28 games.

Teague, Graham and Crabbe all have expiring contracts at the end of the 2019-2020 NBA season.

This move creates a roster spot for Minnesota, which will be very valuable with the trade deadline approaching on Feb. 6.
