Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that restricted free agent Jeff Teague is expected to sign an offer sheet with the Milwaukee bucks of four years, 32 million dollars.

Once Teague signs the offer sheet the Atlanta Hawks will have three days to match the offer if they plan to retain Teague's services. If not, Teague will rejoin former Hawks coach Larry Drew in Milwaukee along with former Hawks C Zaza Pachulia. It is clear that Drew is trying to bring in pieces to Milwaukee that he knows and can help the Bucks have a smooth transition to Drew's system.

At eight million dollars per year, Milwaukee's offer sheet is right around where Teague's value was projected (7-8 million) and the Hawks have a big decision to make. Teague has shown promise of being a high level point guard at times, but his lack of consistency has lessened his value. If the Hawks pass on Teague it will be clear that, in their eyes, they feel he will never reach a consistent level of high play that would warrant a four-year deal.

Update: It's not official confirmation, but either Jeff is planning on signing the offer sheet, or he just leveled up in Call of Duty and is REALLY excited about it.
