According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Brooklyn Nets have been in talks with the Philadelphia 76ers about shipping backup point guard Marquis Teague to Philly. Reports indicate that a deal is “most likely” going to happen.
Wojnarowski also reports that Brooklyn wouldn’t receive anything of significance in return for Teague.
Teague was selected by the Chicago Bulls with the 29th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Teague has failed to make a name for himself during his stints with the Bulls and the Nets, and trading him would be a good way for Brooklyn to shed some cash off the books. Teague will make $1.1 million in 2014-15, and he has a $2 million player option for 2015-16.
Philadelphia, who is in the midst of a rebuilding phase, will look to see if Teague can find his niche with the 76ers.
In Brooklyn’s final preseason game, Teauge had 10 points, four assists and six turnovers in 24 minutes of action.
Marquis Teague was acquired by Brooklyn in a trade with the Bulls last season. He is the younger brother of Atlanta Hawks starting point guard Jeff Teague.
