MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA washed their hands of point guard Jeff Teague in mid-January, agreeing to send him and Treveon Graham to the Atlanta Hawks for small forward Allen Crabbe.

Crabbe, variously known as a sharpshooter during his career, who averaged 13.2 points a game with the Brooklyn Nets in 2017-18, didn’t find his niche on the young Hawks squad, averaging just 5.1 points in 28 games this season.

The Timberwolves might have a high-profile spot for Crabbe with rumors that forward Robert Covington likely will be moved before the Feb. 6 trade deadline.

Crabbe, meanwhile, has spent only the past several months with Atlanta after coming over in a salary dump from the Nets. His deal is set to expire this offseason, so he serves primarily as cap filler here.

While he Crabbe is shooting poorly this season, he made swooshed 40 percent of his 3-point attempts in the prior four seasons with Portland and Brooklyn. Steadier minutes on a team with less shooting might be just what he needs to start hitting shots again, and in a contract year, he should be motivated to shine in Minnesota.
