The Atlanta Hawks are no longer listening to offers for point guard Jeff Teague.

Having traded one point guard away, the Atlanta Hawks are no longer interested in dealing another. The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Hawks have shut down all trade talks involving starting point guard Jeff Teague.

Teague's name has been out there for over a month but the Hawks were reportedly looking for a large return for their starting point guard. Teams like the New York Knicks reportedly had heavy interest in acquiring Teague but did not match up well in a trade and would have needed a third team to be involved. Atlanta cleared a roster spot earlier this afternoon when they dealt Shelvin Mack to the Utah Jazz for a second round pick.

Like the Hawks, Teague has had an up and down season for the Hawks. He is averaging 15.1 points and 5.5 assists in 52 games so far this season. He has picked up his play of late averaging 20 points on 51 percent shooting in six February games prior to the All-Star break.
