Big news in the NBA Thursday as ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Timberwolves have traded point guard Jeff Teague and Treveon Graham to the Atlanta Hawks. 

Wojnarowski says the Wolves have gotten guard Allen Crabbe in return. 

Crabbe is being paid $18.5 million this season but is an unrestricted free agent next summer, so the trade not only frees up a roster spot but also takes more money off the books going into the summer of 2020. 

With Teague gone, the Wolves could give rookie Jarrett Culver more time to be the primary ball handler, or give that role to Andrew Wiggins, who got off to an explosive start to the season when he was often the primary ball handler when Teague was dealing with an injury. 

This could be the first trade for the Wolves with more to come. According to The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor, Minnesota is in the market for a guard. 

Minnesota is 10 games under .500 (15-25) but still only 3.5 games out of a playoff spot. They're back in action Friday against the Indiana Pacers.
