Despite the fact that Brandon Jennings showed interest in returning to Milwaukee, the Hawks expressed interest in Teague early in free agency. Teague played for new Bucks coach Larry Drew in Atlanta, which explains Milwaukee's motives. To create space for a more lucrative Teague offer sheet, the Bucks could amnesty Drew Gooden or renounce Jennings and Monta Ellis.
Stein reported on Monday that the Bucks and Hawks have had discussions on a possible swap of Jennings and Teague. If an offer sheet is put into play, Stein reports that it could trigger ramped-up sign-and-trade discussions and that Milwaukee would be "happy" to deal either Jennings or Ellis.
Further complicating the situation is the fact that the Hawks are interested in free-agent point guard Mo Williams. Williams and Hawks general manager Danny Ferry have history with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
