Blockbuster Trades: Jeff Teague to Pacers, Derrick Rose to Knicks


Jeff Teague is not heading to the Sixers, and Derrick Rose is joining the Sixers' division. 

According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical, the Indiana Pacers have acquired Jeff Teague from the Hawks in part of a three-team deal that included the Utah Jazz.  

The Pacers will send point guard George Hill to the Utah Jazz and the Jazz will send the No. 12 pick in Thursday's draft to Atlanta. 

Teague has spent his whole career with the Hawks after being drafted 19th overall in the 2009 NBA draft. He averaged 15.7 points and 5.9 assists in 79 regular season games during the 2015-16 season, and revealed following the season that he had been playing with a partially torn patellar tendon in his knee.
Teague, 28, is set to be free-agent following the 2016-17 season. 

Meanwhile, minutes later, Yahoo's Shams Charania of the Vertical reported the New York Knicks acquired Rose, Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round pick for Robin Lopez, Jerian Grant and Jose Calderon. 

The Knicks announced they have waived former Sixers guard Tony Wroten.
