The 29-year-old averaged 15.3 points and 7.8 assists in 82 games in 2016-17 for the Indiana Pacers, his first year in his hometown of Indianapolis after seven seasons with the Atlanta Hawks.
Teague's steady play helped push the Pacers into the Eastern Conference playoffs, with Indiana ultimately getting swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round.
He was acquired before last summer's draft in a three-team deal that sent George Hill to the Jazz and the 12th pick in the draft to the Hawks.
