Jeffrey "Jeff" Demarco Teague (born June 10, 1988 in Indianapolis , Indiana ) is an American basketball player who is currently under contract with the Atlanta Hawks in the NBA .


Teague was selected 19th place by the Atlanta Hawks in the 2009 NBA Draft . The first two seasons of his career were solid. Teague started behind Mike Bibby and later came off the bench behind Kirk Hinrich . During the 2011 play-offs , he played around 30 minutes per game and scored over 11 points per game.

Teague has been a nominal starter in the Hawks' point guard position since the 2011/12 season . He improved from year to year and reached the play-offs every time with the Hawks. In the 2013/14 season he scored 16.5 points and 6.7 assists per game.

In 2015 Teague was invited to the NBA All-Star Game for the first time . He played a major role in securing first place with the Hawks in the Eastern Conference and securing the home advantage in the play-offs. However, they lost in the Conference Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers without a win.

After another season with the Hawks, with which he reached the playoffs again, Teague was transferred to the Indiana Pacers in the summer of 2016 as part of a three-team trade . With that he returned to his hometown of Indianapolis .

After just one season with the Pacers, Teague signed a new 3-year contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves , with which he will earn a total of 57 million dollars.

In mid-January 2020, Teague was traded by the Timberwolves to the Atlanta Hawks , returning to his first NBA club.


His younger brother Marquis Teague is also a professional basketball player and was drafted in 29th place by the Chicago Bulls at the beginning of the 2012/13 season .
