So it’s still not even actually off-season, the Spurs lead the Heat 3-2, the draft is still 10 days out, and NBA franchises have yet to enter free agency but seem trigger-happy to let coaches go. Seriously, it’s like “oh hey George Karl and Lionel Collins – you got us a franchise high wins… Do you want the congratulatory used sofa or wood paneled TV?” It’s been a very tumultuous offseason front office wise.
Enter Jeff Teague, a player in a long line of big-ticket free agents, who figures to resign with the Hawks (but you just never know). Free agency negotiations start July 1st with signings starting the 10th, so there’s still some time. It looks most likely he’ll stay in ATL, where I think he’ll be a fantastic bargain on draft day. He really improved all facets of his game, and I think is ready to make the leap into becoming the face of the franchise with Josh Smith probably leaving town. Let’s look at his numbers from last year:
2012-13 Line: 14.6 Pts/2.3 Reb/7.2 Ast

If you or I had a DUI punched at a .272 or .36, there would be a few questions:
