Teague’s road traveled never made it to Milwaukee

In the summer of 2013, the Bucks wanted to bring guard Jeff Teague to Milwaukee. They signed the Atlanta Hawks guard to an offer sheet of four years and $32 million.

The Hawks rebuffed the Bucks’ effort, matching the contract and keeping Teague.

The deal worked out well for Teague at the time. He didn’t suffer through the 2013-14 season that saw the Bucks post a league-worst 15-67 record. A year later, with Mike Budenholzer at the helm, the Hawks posted the Eastern Conference’s best record at 60-22.

Budenholzer moved to the Bucks this past summer, and Teague moved to the Indiana Pacers for the 2016-17 season before going to the Timberwolves in the summer of 2017.

The man who might have been a Buck in 2013 had to endure a Friday night at the Target Center as the Bucks built a lead of 34 points in the third quarter.
